MUNSTER FLEADH 2016 AWARDED TO LISTOWEL

At last Wednesday's Munster Council meeting, the 2016 Munster Fleadh Cheoil was awarded to Listowel, Co. Kerry. 2016 was designated as Clare's turn to host the Fleadh but as Ennis will be hosting the All-Ireland Fleadh in 2016, the Fleadh was opened to applications from across the province. Two excellent applications to host the Fleadh were received both from Listowel and Youghal, Co. Cork.

Having previously hosted the All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil on an unrivaled fourteen occasions, Listowel has a long and proud tradition of hosting many memorable Fleadhanna Cheoil and we look forward to the unique experience of a Listowel Fleadh once again in July 2016. Sincere thanks to Youghal CCÉ who also prepared an excellent bid for the Fleadh

The Comhaltas Summer Seisiún shows will be hosted by 20 Munster branches this summer and will be getting underway in the next two weeks across the province.

Séisiún presents a show of Irish traditional music, song, dance, stories and more, bringing our Irish cultural traditions to life. Each Seisiún show offers an unique audience experience for locals and visitors alike - a real taste of our cultural talent. The first part of the night promises a show with depth but variety as the various aspects of Irish dancing, solo and group instrumental music and singing in both Irish and English are showcased by a resident group of performers. After a break for tea, the evening concludes with an informal session where audiences are invited to take to the floor for a Seige of Ennis or The Walls of Limerick. Join in a song or if you play an instrument please bring it along!

Please support your local Seisiún venue this Summer and spread the word to your branch members about your local Seisiún show.
