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.
