Talent aplenty surfaces at feile cheoil
ALL that’s best and positive about Irish culture surfaced at the Millstreet Comhaltas Ceolteoiri Eireann hosting to their Annual Feile Cheoil in Millstreet Community School on Sunday last
From a full and diverse programme attracting huge entries from across the South West Region, organisers welcomed phenomenal entries to the seven hour programme.
A spectacular success, the ambitious programme depicted the depth of musical heritage from participants drawn near and afar.
Proceedings opened with an extensive set dance programme where polkas, hornpipes, jigs and reels of all varities emerged the flavour.
With the county fleadh cheoil just around the corner in Ballincollig, individuals and groups used the Millstreet staging to test their wares.
Indeed classrooms, school canteen and library reverberated to the sounds of music, song and poetry. To the sweet strains of fiddles to banjoes and accordions, the music spilled onto the corridors and outdoors in between the April showers.
Féile Cheoil organisers, headed by Chairman James Linehan; Secretary Kevin Buckley; Treasurer Asling O’Regan and PRO Michelle O’Keeffe, were helped by a dedicated group of committee members for streamlining the day long programme.
Millstreet CCE extend thanks to Millstreet Community School for the provision of an excellent facility that met with a favourable response from visitors drawn from all over the South West Region.
A Millstreet Set Dance Group of Eva Carroll, Orla Twomey, Aoife Casey, Méabh Buckley, Niamh Smith, Eabha Sheehan, Aoife Tarrant and Hannah O’Regan sampled success at the Feile Cheoil.
