Over 150 mins of the best highlights from Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2008 are captured on the DVD.

It highlights much of the atmosphere and many activities over the 8-day duration of the Fleadh – the impromptu sessions on the streets and in the pubs, the concerts, the competitions with over 10,000 taking part, the 5-day Scoil Éigse where 60 master tutors pass on their skills to almost 800 young musicians from all over the world, the Senior Céilí Band competition which is one of the Fleadh highlights, and the gathering of 2,852 musicians all playing at the same time to establish a World Record.

Now one of the greatest cultural festivals in the world, Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann reflects the phenomenal success of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann since its foundation in 1951 to help preserve our cultural traditions – music, song, dance and language which were then struggling for survival. Today Comhaltas is organised in 15 countries on 4 continents. Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is an annual gathering of over ¼ million people and 10,000 musicians from all over the world in a celebration of Irish Culture. The Fleadh, hosted for the second year in succession in the heart of Ireland by the lovely town of Tullamore was one of the greatest in almost six decades, reflecting the work and innovation of a magnificent organising committee and the warmth and hospitality of the people of Tullamore.
