MORE than 15,000 visitors are expected in Cork city this summer for the Munster Fleadh Cheoil.
Following a successful bid by Douglas Comhaltas Eireann, Cork City will be hosting the Fleadh Cheoil na Mumhan in July. This will be the first occasion in which the traditional Irish music competition is staged in the city centre. Cork City is also bidding to bring the All-Ireland Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann in 2018.
A lengthy programme of events is being planned for the Munster Fleadh which will run from July 17 to July 23. Independent Cllr Kieran McCarthy noted that in recent years Cork City Council has championed the city as a venue for traditional music. "Cork City Council is actively engaged with Douglas Comhaltas in the development of their business plan around the event and the finalisation of a programme of events. Great credit is due to those who bid and won this event. The hosting of this event represents an important exercise of learning for the stake-holders that are key to the running of a Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann event."
"The awarding of the Munster Fleadh to Cork represents a fantastic opportunity to showcase traditional Irish music, song, and dance in Cork, enhancing the cultural experience for the people of Cork and its many visitors. It is going to be a great week".
