Fleadh Cheoil is an amazing celebration of traditional music, song and dance. We as a family have been attending Fleadh for about twenty odd years and it is spe...ctacular. The Marching Bands on the final Sunday is particularly entertaining, the music is the best you will hear, and their formations can be quite complicated. See More

Wondering where to holiday this Summer? Why not join us in Ennis for #fleadh2017? Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann takes place in the Clare county town from August 13 to August 21, 2017. There is plenty for all ages to enjoy at the largest Irish Traditional Music Festival in the world. You could even arrive a little early and explore all that County Clare has to offer. Check out www.fleadhcheoil.ie http://www.clare.ie and http://www.discoverireland.ie/Places-To-Go/Clare. Here’s a little flavour of last year’s Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann which also took place in Ennis, courtesy of ireland.com.

It’s the weekend - and we couldn’t resist sharing some toe tapping music from Lúnasa ahead of their “Clare to Here” concert during #fleadh2017. We could tell you the reason we are sharing this video is because Lúnasa is internationally acknowledged as being one of the finest traditional Irish instrumental outfits of recent times. We could say they are renowned for their stunning shows honed by superb musicianship and a constant touring cycle. And we could inform you that they have performed over 1,500 shows across 36 countries since the band formed in 1997. The band has appeared at internationally renowned venues such as The Hollywood Bowl, National Concert Hall (Dublin), Sydney Opera House, Moscow International House of Music and are now destined for the Shannon Aerodome, Ennis on August 17, for Fleadh Cheoil na Éireann. While this is of course all true, the real truth is it’s the weekend and we just wanted to share the happiness!!!

Every wonder who taught Michael Flatley to dance? Or who indeed was his teacher’s teacher? Well wonder no more, because this evening we share a little history lesson, of sorts, and really just allow ourselves the chance to play some old film from the archives. This is one of the earliest nationally televised performances of the McNiff Dancers. This Ulster style of Irish dance, known for its more complicated steps, was made popular in the US by the McNiffs in the 1950s and 1960s. Performing here with the McNiffs is Jimmy Erwin, who taught Donny Golden, who in turn, it is claimed by some supporters of the McNiff dancers, taught Micheal Flatley of Riverdance fame. It is more than likely they could have been acquaintances or friends, but feel free to shed some light on this if you know. We know for sure that Michael has referenced numerous times his mentor and Irish dance teacher the late Dennis Dennehy. All considered we get a chace to share this great piece from yesteryear, and also so share some memories and stories. On another note our understanding is that Larry Redican, who was a Fleadh Cheoil All Ireland champion, is playing the fiddle for the dancers here. Let us know if you can identify anyone else. Enjoy!

It’s official! Lord of the Dance Michael Flatley will open #fleadh2017.
The accomplished dancer, flautist, actor, director and producer, is looking forward to returning to the town where he was once a competitor in Fleadh Cheoil na Éireann.
Here is what Michael said about his return to Ennis and the Fleadh: “It’s a great honour to be asked to open this year’s Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Ennis. It is such a great home of traditional music and a place I have very fond memories of including winning the All-Ireland there many years ago. It is vitally important for all of us to nurture young talent and to encourage young people today to play Irish music. I’m really looking forward to it and am sure it will be a huge success.”

And now for the feet to do the talking ….

While Shakespeare had some ideas on music being the food of love, Supermac’s Ireland has taken an alternative view to the bard by providing food to the music of #fleadh2017.

For a second year in a row Ireland’s largest indigenous quick service restaurant chain has announced its sponsorship of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann, Inis.

The well-known food company with a family restaurant in Ennis will continue as a gold sponsor of the Fleadh which is taking place between August 13 and 21.
