Martina Anderson welcomes Fleadh decision for Derry
Derry Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson said she is delighted with the news that the 2013 Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann will be coming to Derry.
Marina Anderson said:
“This is not only an historic decision with the All-Ireland Fleadh coming to the Six Counties for the first time ever but a great result for the city and county of Derry.
“There has been a lot of tremendous work done by many dedicated people to bring this successful bid and they deserve all the credit. Special thanks also goes to the timely intervention of Martin McGuinness and Peter Robinson in resolving any concerns that Comhaltas had concerning the Fleadh coming to Derry.
“I’m sure this will not only be an historic Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann but also the best one ever as we celebrate the very finest in music, song, dance and much more of Irish culture.”
