Fleadh Cheoil is a competition for amateur musicians and is taking place in Drogheda from 11th to 18th August. From the mythical times to the present day there have been festivals in Ireland judging and celebrating the skills and arts of entertainers. Few places in the western world have managed to maintain their musical traditions as successfully as Ireland has.
