Entente Florale

The town  of Tullamore is involved in the international Entente Florale competition. Tullamore looked fantastic when visited by a group of dignatories from across Europe. Killeigh Comhaltas & friends played some music in O’Connor Square & later in the Tullamore Dew Visitor Centre.

Following the recent Leinster Fleadh, Killeigh Comhaltas will be will well represented at the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil in Ennis. Our 15-18 Ceili Band came 3rd so won’t be going on to the All-Ireland but we are tremendously proud of them all & their performances. Huge congrats & best wishes to: Clare-Anne

Kearns (O18 Fiddle, O18 fiddle slow airs, O18 button accordion), Roisin O’Connor (U12 fiddle slow airs), Muireann Carton (15-18 Harp Slow Airs), U12 Longridge Ceili Band (& a special mention to Con who travelled from abroad specially to play), Ciaran O’hAolain (12-15 Songs in English). Well done to everyone who took part. Congrats to all the Offaly competitors in Ennis. To take part at that level of competition is a huge achievement.

October session & the Christmas Party 2015

At our October session & at then at our Christmas Party, we made presentations to Claire-Ann Kearns (2nd Senior Fiddle, 2nd Newly Composed Tunes), Ciaran O’hAoláin (who qualified for the Men’s Singing), Sinead Keyes (who qualified for the Senior Concertina competition) & Muireann Carton who was part of a Trio who performed at Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann in Sligo 2015. The other pics show our students, young & older, all playing a few tunes. It was wonderful to see such a big turnout and support from all the parents. Well done everyone. Nollag Shóna diaoibh agus Ath bhliain faoi mhaise diaoibh.
