Laois Fleadh Ceoil update
Laois Fleadh Ceoil, organised under the auspices of Spink CCÉ will be held at Abbeyleix over three days, 30th May to 1st June. This will be a festive occasion in the town and while it is not a replacement for the Maytime festival of other years, it will bring visitors from all parts of the county and beyond. Thanks to the Management and staff of St Mary’s Primary school all competitions will take place at the Ballyroan road venue.
Opening on Friday evening with Set and Ceili Dancing, the competitions will continue on Sat and Sunday afternoons. Adult competitions will be held on Sat evening from 7.30pm onwards with the promise of some good sessions down town later. The Marching band display and parade at 12 noon on Sunday will be a feature with some glamorous guests expected to attend. The members of Spink branch of Comhaltas are looking forward to hosting the fleadh which has not been held in Abbeyleix for decades. Competition entries to Fleadh Sec Lawrence Vesey close on 30th April, non members of Comhaltas are very welcome to compete and should contact email@example.com and for info visit our facebook page www.facebook.com/laoiscountyfleadh
