Tullamore will celebrate “three in a row” with the good news from the Ardchomhairle of Comhaltas at the week-end that the town has again been selected to host next year’s All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil.

The 2007 and 2008 Fleadh held at the Offaly venue have won many accolades at home and abroad. Many tributes were paid by the Ardchomhairle to the Fleadh Committee and the host community on the excellence of the great cultural and social event.

The Director General of Comhaltas, Senator Labhrás Ó Murchú, said that Tullamore has set the bar very high for future venues. “Their innovation, dedication, professionalism, hospitality and attention to detail were inspiring. They have placed our cultural traditions on a pedestal and have raised the morale of the hundreds of thousands of people who attended the Fleadhanna for the last two years. We all felt so very welcome in the town which has earned such wide spread admiration. Tullamore is an ideal venue for the Fleadh and will rank as one of the best of all time”.

Senator Ó Murchú said that what was very significant about the Fleadh in Tullamore was the effective partnership which existed between Comhaltas, Local Authorities and other public agencies, Gardaí, sponsors, local media, the business community, venue proprieters and the general public.

Fleadh 2009 will officially open on Monday, 17th August, and continues for a whole week.
