21/08/2018 ALL IRELAND FLEADH SUCCESSES

Congratulations to Conrad O’Coisneachain who was placed second in Uilleann Pipes age 12-15 at the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil in Drogheda at the weekend, and to Fearghal Close who was a member of the Crosskeys Senior Grupai Cheoil who were also placed second in their competition.  This was a significant achievement as the standard at this level is extremely high and all competitors are competing against Ulster, Munster, Leinster, Connaught, UK and North American champions.

Congratulations as well to Niamh Mooney (harp), Peadar Connor (clarinet), Dónal Close (piano) and Sinéad Close (harp) who all also qualified to play in their individual competitions at the All Ireland after being placed first or second in the Ulster Fleadh, which took place in Castlewellan at the end of July.  Loreto was well represented in the traditional music community this Summer!
