In celebration of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann's second year in Drogheda, local composer and conductor Michael Holohan will be presenting a very special concert called Airs of Old Drogheda and Ceiliúradh Seamus Ennis (1919-2019). 

This concert promises to be the event of the Fleadh for locals as it will feature local pieces of Irish traditional music in very original orchestral arrangements. Some of these tunes have not been heard in Drogheda for over two centuries. 

A star studded cast will include Mick O’Brien pipes; Donal O’Kelly actor and playwright; Brian Dunning flute; Simon O’Dwyer Bronze Age horns and Ancient Music Ireland; Hannah O’ Brien and Máire Ní Choilm singers; Roisín Ward Morrow violin; Breifne Holohan and Baz Leahy guitars. 

Last but not least, the concert will include the talents of The Boyne Valley Chamber Orchestra from Drogheda, who gave such a wonderful performance of The Road to Lough Swilly recently in the National Library, Dublin and more recently played alongside the Con Tempo Quartet at a wonderful evening of music at Beaulieu House.
