Peadars are delighted about the news that the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann will be gracing the streets of Derry from the 12th August to the 18th of August 2013. Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann has been running for over 60 years across Ireland but this year is very special, as Cheoil na hÉireann crosses the border for the first time in 2013!
Fleadh Cheoil whose primary goal has been to establish the benchmarks in Irish traditional music through competition. Since then the Fleadh has developed itself mainly as a competitive event, but this also includes showcases of concerts, parades, céilithe, pageants, and street sessions.
In 2013 Derry will see a gathering like no other, upwards to 300,000 people will descend upon it’s streets, music and dancing will be prevelant everywhere.
This will be something too look forward to indeed!
And of course Peadar O’Donnell’s will be creating something very special to coincide and accommodate the spectacle, watch this space!
