Tal­ent aplenty sur­faces at feile cheoil

The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

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.
