McLellan welcomes Derry Fleadh decision
The Sinn Féin spokesperson on arts, heritage, tourism and sport Sandra McLellan TD, has welcomed the decision today by the executive of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann to hold next year’s Fleadh in Derry.
Speaking after the announcement was made Deputy McLellan said:
“The news that the 2013 Fleadh will be held in Derry is fantastic. It will be the first time the event will be held in the 6 counties and will be a major attraction celebrating all aspects of Irish music and culture. I’m sure the decision will provide a welcome boost not only to Derry, as our fourth biggest city, but to the whole North West area.
“I want to congratulate those who have worked so hard on the Derry bid. I am sure the city will prove an excellent host. I wish them well.”
