County Fleadh Success

Red Door Cafe Carrig on Bannow

Well done to Bannow Comhaltas on a very lively and entertaining County Fleadh in sunny Carrig on Bannow last weekend. Comhghairdeas mór to all our own musicians, singers and dancers who played, sang and danced their hearts out. While some medalled, others were happy simply to give it a lash and to enjoy the moment. Participation is the thing, being part of a great cultural happening. To those going on to Fleadh Laighean in Muine Bheag / Bagnelstown (July 8-15) we wish you all the best of luck.

Comhaltas Insurance: Music Schools and Events

Comhaltas Insurance
The subject of insurance came up at the Craobh Loch Garman committee meeting last night. Following a query on the matter we had sought clarification from Comhaltas administration on the following:

uilleann pipes

Gay McKeon, CEO of Na Píobairí Uilleann, is on a mission to convert more musicians to the uilleann pipes. Armed with his trusty set of Leo Rowsome pipes he has already made a couple of visits to Wexford as guest of the recently reformed Wexford Pipers Club. The main aim is to give musicians a hands-on introduction to the pipes. He will be back to us again in the new year. Keep an eye on FB for details.
