Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann on RTE1

Fleadh Cheoil Na hÉireann – this six part series, recorded at Tullamore in August 2008, continues on Friday nights at 7.30pm on RTE 1

The All-Ireland Fleadh has become one of the biggest and longest running free music festivals in the world.

A few hundred traditional music followers attended the first Fleadh Cheoil in Mullingar in 1951.

Last summer, many thousands of people from all over the world were back in the midlands town of Tullamore for the 2008 All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil. This series of six half hour programmes captures the fun, excitement and good music that happens each year at this truly international music event.

With thousands of musicians in Tullamore the Fleadh programmes feature many of the top names in traditional music as well as several talented new performers. Some to look out for are Benny McCarthy, Ciaran Somers, David Sheridan, Joe Burke, Conor McEvoy, Pick of the Litter, Nábac, The Mulcahy Family, Foster & Allen and the All Ireland Céilí Band champions the Innisfree Céilí Band.

The Fleadh Cheoil series is presented by Pat Butler and Breda Smyth and the six part series starts on RTE 1 on Friday 3rd April at 7.30pm.
