Fleadh Cheoil Liatroma 2008

The 2008 Fleadh Cheoil Liatroma was hosted this year by Drumsna (Droim ar Snamh). The village of Drumsna nestles on the banks of the River Shannon. Famous people connected with Drumsna include the famous explorer Surgeon Thomas Heazle Park. Park took part in the Nile expedition together with Stanley. Author Anthony Trollope came to work in Drumsna Post Office in 1843 and found the inspiration for the first of his 50 novels in the village.
