Following their highly acclaimed return to glór in February, and the release of their best-selling album “Live in glór”, the Clare Youth Trad Orchestra, under the direction of Padraic O’Reilly, returns with a whole new show (and a whole new set of members too!)
Joining the 60 hugely talented teenagers onstage will be the internationally-acclaimed Joanie Madden and Mary Coogan (Cherish the Ladies) and local legends Siobhán Peoples and Hugh Healy. This promises to be yet another exciting chapter in this orchestra’s ever-expanding list of collaborations and concerts.
2022 Fleadh Nua in Ennis promises to be an exciting and innovative festival, full to the brim with Concerts, Ceilis, Sessions, CD Launches, Recitals, Irish Dance Competitions and Street Entertainment.
Since 1974 Fleadh Nua has developed from a 3-day event to a festival spanning 10 days, with more than 120 separate events, where there is a welcome for everyone. There are many Irish traditional festivals organised throughout the summer months but there are few people who will dispute that Fleadh Nua which started in Dublin in 1970, is the forerunner of them all. The concept of bringing together concerts, céilithe, music, song and dancing workshops, street entertainment, and much more was innovative in its time. However, it’s still a winning formula today as evidenced by the thousands of visitors who flock to the festival for a week of unsurpassed traditional entertainment.
