Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is a ten-day long event open to all embracing all aspects of the Irish Cultural traditions, music, song, dance agus an Ghaeilge. It is estimated that this national/international celebration of Irish culture will be attended by in the region of 300,000 people including a sizeable number of overseas visitors with upwards of 70% of the attendees comprising young people. The event is expected to generate an estimated income of upwards on €40 million in Cavan and its hinterland.
