Sligo produced an incredible number of winners at the 70th Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Mullingar recently.

Taking place from July 31 to August 7 town pulsed with Irish rhythm as age-old traditions were celebrated by new generations and the vibrancy of the Fleadh emanated throughout the same town the festival was founded in 1951. Over 500,000 people thronged the streets of Mullingar to witness over 5,000 competitors playing, singing, and dancing in 230 competitions.

Fleadh Chairperson Joe Connaire said, “While we had a delay in bringing the Fleadh due to Covid, it was certainly worth the wait! Memories have been made that will last a lifetime and the legacy of the Fleadh is the increased interest in traditional Irish music, song and dance that will last for generations to come.”

10C Bainseó / Banjo (15-18), 2nd Sinéad Johnston, CCÉ, South Sligo, Sligo
