Welcome to the website of the 2016 Cork County Fleadh which will be hosted in Charleville, Co Cork, from May 5th-8th 2016.
Traditional musicians of all ages are invited to gather in Charleville next May for Fleadh Cheoil Chorcaí 2016, which will be hosted by Comhaltas An Rath in Charleville for the first time. This year's Fleadh will be a unique event in the history of Fleadh Cheoil Chorcaí as the entire Fleadh will be hosted in the magnificent Charleville Park Hotel.
The Fleadh Cheoil is a weekend festival comprised of ceili dancing, music sessions, street entertainment and competitions in music, singing, dancing and storytelling. Under 12 and 12/15 competitions will take place on Saturday May 7th, while 15/18 and Senior competitions will take place in Sunday, May 8th. Two qualifiers from each competition will go forward to represent Cork in the Munster Fleadh Cheoil in Listowel, Co. Kerry in July.
As Fleadh hosts, Cr An Rath Comhaltas are compiling an exciting programme of events to ensure that the 2016 Fleadh is a memorable celebration of traditional Irish culture.
