Fleadh Ceoil na hEireann 2016

One medal to report from this year’s Fleadh Ceoil na hEireann in Ennis – Hugh Mulholland, our secretary and banjo/mandolin/bodhran tutor, was awarded second place in the O-18 mandolin competition. Many congratulations to Hugh and, indeed, to all our other competitors at the fleadh. Although the weather wasn’t what we’d hoped for, it was a very enjoyable and successful event and we look forward to returning next year, preparations for which start with our classes in a few weeks – watch this space.
