The south Longford town of Ballymahon is all set to host the Leinster Fleadh, which will take place next week - July 10 to 16.
It has been 12 years since the Fleadh was last held in Longford and there is great excitement around the county as a range of events and activities are organised for the week-long festival.
The Fleadh will officially kick off on Monday evening in Ballymahon Library at 8pm, with refreshments, followed by a Trad Session in Ronnie Nally’s Bar across the road.
The following week will include a range of competitions, literary events, workshops, family fun days and pub sessions in various parts of Ballymahon and surrounding areas.
The Fleadh promises to be a fantastic week, with something for everyone to enjoy.
