Many young musicians from the surrounding areas of Templemore have a lot to celebrate in the wake of the world’s largest annual celebration of Irish music, song, and dance. Fleadh Cheoil na hEireann 2022 took place in Mullingar where over half a million visitors descended on the Westmeath town from the 31st of July to the 7th of August.
Comhaltas groups from Killea, Loughmore and Clonmore brought back the gold, silver and bronze in great style and we congratulate each and every one of them. All the long practice hours and dedication to your music and dance has paid off. Sincere congratulations to the parents and teachers too of course. We are very proud of our fine young musicians. Here they are listed below.
