Mullingar set to host Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann next year

Mullingar in Co Westmeath is set to host Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann next year.

The town’s been chosen by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann to hold the ten day traditional Irish music, language, song and dance event.

It comes after a meeting of its Ard Comhairle in Monkstown in Dublin on Friday night.

The last time Mullingar hosted the Fleadh was in 1963 – it’s expected to generate over 50 million euro for the local economy.
