The 2022 Fleadh Cheoil Mhaigh Eo will take place in Achill on Saturday and Sunday, 7 and 8 of May. The last time Scoil Acla CCÉ hosted Fleadh Cheoil Mhaigh Eo was in 1996.
The weekend will begin, with an opening night featuring music, song and dance in Óstán Oileán Acla from 8-9.30pm. Competitions will take place in earnest on both Saturday and Sunday in Coláiste Pobail Acla, Achill GAA Clubhouse, Óstán Oileán Acla and Halla Acla, Achill Sound. The official Fleadh Mass will be celebrated in Achill Sound Church at 11.30am on Sunday Morning.
Tommy English, Chairperson of the Fleadh Cheoil said “after a break of 2 years, we are delighted to be in a position to host the Fleadh in Achill once again. It has been a difficult number of years, particularly for younger musicians and I want to pay full credit to them all for registering to compete this year. We are very much looking forward to welcoming the many hundreds of competitors, their families and supporters to Achill and wish them all the best of luck.”
“Ba mhaith liom thar ceann an Choiste Áitiúla mo bhuíochas a ghabháil le Choiste Mhaigh Eo as an deis a thabhairt dúinn Fleadh Cheoil Mhaigh Eo 2022 a óstáil anseo in Acaill.”
The weekend promises to be a great spectacle of music, song, dance and Gaeilge with music and singing sessions taking place in local pubs as well as the Céilí mór in Óstán Oileán Acla on Saturday night at 8.30pm, entry €12.
