June 18th at 8pm
Opening Concert of Fleadh na Mumhan 'Glór Chorcaí' featuring Jackie Daly, Matt Cranitch, Jimmy Crowley and Mairtín de Cogáin
As this is first time in which Fleadh na Mumhan is being staged in a city centre, it presents us with a unique opportunity to create a Fleadh Village.
Unlike other cities, you can walk everywhere in Cork City within minutes and our plan would be to concentrate activity during the Fleadh around the Oliver Plunkett Street area, to ensure everything is compact and within easy reach. Oliver Plunkett Street, a pedestrianised street from which numerous connected streets diverge, is ideal as a Fleadh Village, creating a fantastic compact town atmosphere for the duration of the Festival. Oliver Plunkett St is also directly adjacent to the main competition venues to ensure easy access for Fleadh competitiors to the village.
This streetscape of Oliver Plunkett St is a village within a city, and it has a real sense of community. It includes a lot of open areas, which lend themselves to street sessions, and also boasts a huge range of bars, some of which are the most famous traditional pubs in Cork. These pubs are regular haunts for The Lee Sessions, free traditional Irish music gigs that take place in Cork almost nightly.
At the end of Oliver Plunkett Street, the Fleadh Gig Rig will be located where the finest of traditional music will performed during the weekend.
