Fleadh Cheoil Uíbh Fhailí 2015

This years  fleadh was hosted by Killeigh Comhaltas on the 8th, 9th & 10th of May.

 

Congratulations to all our members and friends who took part in last weekends Offaly fleadh, Rahan enjoyed successes in 61 different categories which is no mean feat to achieve in one of the toughest fleadhs (over 800 entries) in the country to qualify out of these days. We were well represented in a wide variety of disciplines from Comhrá Gaeilge, Instrumental music, Song and Dance which shows the strength and depth of our culture we have in this part of the county.

Here is a list of our branch achievements
