Fleadh Nua Festival Ennis
19 May 2013 - 27 May 2013
Today 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, céilithe, music, song and dancing workshops, street entertainment, pageants/parades 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.
The programme for Fleadh Nua 2010 will include concerts, sessions, street and gig-rig entertainment, Irish language classes, Pléaracha, Scoraíocht and set dancing competitions, story-telling, céilithe, Singers Club and much more.
The wide range of activities, many of them free of charge, will offer something of interest to everyone with a passion for traditional music, song and dance.
The pubs of Ennis have always opened their doors to musicians from around the world, and this year is no exception.
