Connacht Fleadh begins in Strokestown this Saturday

Gala event will continue until July 7

Strokestown CCÉ is hosting Fleadh Cheoil Connachta 2024 with the first of the events kicking off on this Saturday, the 29th of June, and the celebrations continuing through until July 7th.

The competition portion of the festival will be launched on Thursday, July 4th, but beyond that, a host of different musical, sporting, and cultural events will take place from June 29th to July 7th inclusive.

This includes a number of music sessions and concerts, a wellness evening, sporting events, dance workshops, lectures on Uileann Piping and different aspects of history, culture, and folklore, a CD launch, Cupán Cainte (a social morning of chats and coffee – all done ‘as Gaeilge’!), and much more!

A double bill concert with Gatehouse and Téada with Niamh Farrell, as well as a ceilí with The Swallows Tail Ceilí Band, are among the other highly-anticipated events set to take place.

The Fleadh fun will also feature a collaboration with the Brothers of Charity and their radio station ‘Our Voice FM’. Fleadh committee members will conduct interviews to share details about the Fleadh events, and local musicians will perform a selection of tunes and songs during the show.

There is sure to be something for everyone at this year’s Connacht Fleadh in Strokestown. Be sure not to miss out on the fun and visit for a full, day-to-day breakdown of all the exciting events in store!
