Cavan Fleadh: We extend a warm welcome to all locals and visitors home for the Fleadh in the area and it looks that it will be begger and better that last year if that is possible! As an added attraction this year Local artist Siobhan Harten, Cloncovid has created a unique experience called “Cavan Obscura” for Fleadh Cheoil na HEireann 2011. Siobhan brings this exciting project to Cavan from Thursday 18th until Sunday 21st. Transformed into a Cmera Oscura a Bus Eireann double-decker bus will take you on an unforgettable adventure. For four days only, unsuspecting visitors on board the bus will embark on a magical mystery tour of Cavan – a visual experience for both locals and visitors creating a wonderful sensory experience of the surrounding area.
