Adams congratulates Drogheda on winning bid to hold Fleadh Cheoil 2018
Sinn Féin Louth TD Gerry Adams has welcomed today’s decision by Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann to hold the 2018 Fheadh Cheoil in Drogheda.
Teachta Adams said:
“I want to commend the efforts of the Drogheda Fleadh Bid Committee, Drogheda Comhaltas, County Council representatives, Members of the Emergency Services, and local volunteers who all worked hard to successfully win the bid to hold Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2018 in Drogheda.
“The Fleadh Cheoil is one of the most important events in the cultural life of this island. Holding it in Drogheda will be an enormous boost to the local economy, especially tourism. It will also enhance the local traditional Irish music, dance, and language sectors.
“Drogheda is perfectly placed to hold the Fleadh and I am very confident that the people of the town will embrace this opportunity to showcase Drogheda.”
