Ulster Fleadh 2009

The 2009 Ulster Provincial Fleadh will be held in Castlewellan, County Down from July 24-26.

Castlewellan is an attractive setting for the Ulster Fleadh and is noted for its two forest parks nearby. It’s also a market town and has two squares, two market houses and two attractive churches. Internationally renowned for its Arboretum, Castlewellan Forest Park has become one of the key attractions for tourists to the region. Dating from about 1860 the Arboretum contains exotic trees and plants from throughout the world and is particularly famed for the conifer ‘Castlewellan Gold’. Also featured in the Arboretum are the walled Annesley Garden, spring garden, autumn wood, winter garden and rhododendron woods.

Fleadh Uladh is organised by Newcastle Comhaltas Ceoltoiri Eireann, queries should be directed to them, +44 (0)7712 881 445. Also see fleadh information page
