Fleadh Nua Festival Ennis
22 May 2016 - 30 May 2016
Fleadh Nua is an 8 day festival with more than 120 separate events, where there is a welcome for everyone. There are many Irish traditional festivals organised throughout the summer months but there are few people who will dispute that Fleadh Nua which started in Dublin in 1970, is the forerunner of them all.
The concept of bringing together concerts, ceilithe, music, song and dancing workshops, street entertainment and much more was innovative in its time. However, it's still a winning formula today as evidenced by the thousands of visitors who flock to the festival every May for a week of unsurpassed traditional entertainment.
