Fáilte | Welcome from the Chairperson

downloadWe are delighted to confirm to you that Scoil Acla CCÉ has secured the backing of Coiste Mhaigh Eo – Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann to host the Mayo Fleadh Cheoil in May 2020.

Each May, one of 14 Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann branches in Mayo plays host to the event. The 2019 Mayo Fleadh Cheoil took place most recently in Foxford, hosted and excellently run by our colleagues in Admiral Brown CCÉ.

We expect a large number of attendees, competitors, visitors and volunteers at the 2020 Fleadh Cheoil therefore there will be a significant economic benefit to the parish just before the summer season begins.

It will be a year of celebration for Scoil Acla as our branch be marking 110 years since the founding of the original school in 1910 and 35 years since its revival in 1985.

We cannot possibly host the Fleadh without the help and support of the local community and business leaders. The Fleadh committee has prepared a number of sponsorship packages tailored for small and larger businesses, please contact us for more details.

We look forward to welcoming you to Achill and to Fleadh Cheoil Mhaigh Eo 2020!

Le meas,

Tommy English
