Event Details

In 1951, a group from the Pipers’ Club travelled to Mullingar to a meeting with the Walderstown Pipers, chaired by Cáit Bean Uí Mhuineacháin. From this initial meeting, the organisation that was to become known as Comhaltas Ceoltoirí Eireann begn to grow. A decision was also made to organise an annual festival of Irish music, song and dance and invitations were issued to musicians from all over Ireland to attend the first Fleadh Cheoil.

This concert will commemorate these early days in Westmeath and through the years that followed in the Pipers’ Club in Dublin’s Thomas Street. Special performances on the night from the families of the founding members and the renowned All Ireland champions The Pipers’ Club Céilí Band.

Tickets, each costing €20 plus €2 booking fee, are available from https://fleadhcheoil.ticketsolve.com/shows/873626459.
