Comhaltas Fleadhfest 2021 took place in Sligo from August 1 to 9 with Cormac Lynch, competing in the Rince ar an Sean Nós 1 Céim competition.

The final which took place on the Sunday afternoon saw Cormac compete with two other finalists from Mayo and Cavan. All three put in fantastic performances with Cormac emerging as the winner and bringing home the All Ireland title to Mullinalaghta.

The bonfire was lit on Sunday evening in Culleenmore with music and dance enjoyed by all on the road.

Cormac's sisters Dearbháila and Aoibhinn appeared on TG4 on Wednesday night (August 18) playing a tune with Sharron Shannon and Nathan Carter.

Sharon Shannon and her niece Caoilinn Ni Dhonnabháin, completed a four-week travel and music programme along the River Shannon for TG4.

The programme is called Heartlands and the Lynch sisters and three other musicians from Edgeworthstown were invited to play a few tunes with Sharon, Caoilinn and Nathan in Clondra at the start of June.
