Your events guide for the big Fleadh weekend

Front Page

Here’s the final in our series of guides to the events, official and otherwise, of Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann 2019.

We’ve combined the two days into one guide because, once the Taoiseach leaves town (he’ll be doing a walkabout around 3.00 this afternoon) we’re taking the rest of the weekend off.

Our thanks to the busy bees in the Drogheda Tourist Office for supplying us with the “what’s on” information throughout the week.
