Virtual Fleadh Cheoil 2020 on TG4

Doireann and Daithí

To make up for the absence of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2020, TG4 ran with a virtual Fleadh. The episodes are available to watch online

Leinster Virtual Fleadh

Leinster Comhaltas

What a strange year it has been between schizophrenic weather, quare viruses and the leader of the once most powerful nation on Earth worried more about how his hair looks than the state of the nation. And, as if all that was not bizzare enough, a year without fleadhanna! Nothing for it but to rally the troops and circle the wagons. Which is exactly what Leinster Comhaltas has done. Check out this cool video, made during lockdown, which features music and singing from every part of the province. 'Is doiligh ceann catach a chíoradh' (It's hard to comb a curly head) ach le croí laidir is intinneach is féidir linn gach doghrainn romhainn a bhriseadh.

Fograí

There will be no fleadhanna this year - county, provincial or national. We remain at the mercy of the big bug which started in the east but which is now all over the globe. Our hearts go out to everyone in Westmeath Comhaltas who we know have put in so much time and energy for an event which will not now happen. More recently Comhaltas has made the difficult decision not to proceed with an event in 2021. With so much pre-planning required and given the resources involved in running the event the decision is totally understandable. As the seanfhocal says: Tamall gan treoir, tamall na ndeor (Time without direction is a time of tears).

We held our 2nd annual Wexford Trad & Folk Weekend before the pandemic axe fell. Bhí sé go h-iontach! Imagine if that was the first and last festival of the year in Wexford!

This year's Craobh Loch Garman AGM takes place online on Monday, December 7th at 7pm. See News page for details.

Comhaltas

Comhaltas Logo

Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann is the largest group involved in the preservation and promotion of Irish traditional music. We’re a non-profit cultural movement with hundreds of local branches around the world, and as you can read in our history we’ve been working for the cause of Irish music since the middle of the last century (1951 to be precise). Our efforts continue with increasing zeal as the movement launches itself into the 21st century.
