18 August, 2019 - by Imelda Munster TD


Sinn Féin Business Spokesperson and TD for Louth Imelda Munster has said that Fleadh Cheoil 2019 showcases Drogheda "at its best" and has welcomed the investment and positivity the event has brought to Drogheda town.

Speaking today, Deputy Munster said;

"Over the past week we have seen almost half a million visitors come to Drogheda from across the island of Ireland and indeed many parts of the world.

"Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2019 has been a great celebration of Ceol, Craic and Irish culture, as well as a great boost for local businesses, and to the local economy.

"I want to thank all of those involved in the planning and organising of Drogheda’s Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann this year, especially the Executive Committee, local businesses and Louth County Council.

"It is particularly welcome to see that this year, on its fiftieth anniversary, that Fleadh 2019 passed without incident and with an even bigger crowd in attendance that last year.

"Hopefully this can set a precedent going forward, that people can see Drogheda for the warm, welcoming town that it is; a strong location for tourism, business and sense of real community spirit."
