Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann Countdown


12th-19th August 2018

Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is the biggest traditional Irish music festival on the planet, a week-long jamboree of music, song and dance, not to mention late nights and family fun!


Summer’s biggest TV show returns!
The journey begins…

Every journey has to start somewhere, in the case of FleadhTV it first appeared on TV screens in 2013 with Fleadh Cheoil taking place in the north of Ireland, for the first time, in Derry (then titled Fleadh Live). A little programme coming from the monster of an event that is Fleadh Cheoil has now become one of TG4’s flagship programmes of the year let alone summer! In 2017 the series was watched by over 700,000 over the weekend of live shows. However FleadhTV isn’t just another music TV show, it’s one of the leading lights of multiscreen viewing with their social channels exploding content. On Fleadh week in 2017, 1 million video views were logged on FleadhTV’s own social networks. This is the very social Fleadh!

The FleadhTV shows in August are the mAIN STAY of the series, this year there is an extra show so it’s now running from Thursday 16th August to Sunday 19th August inclusive from 2030hrs to 2330hrs (or when the music stops!) each night. Fleadh Cheoil 2018 will be taking place on the East Coast of Ireland in Drogheda and excitement is already building for what looks likely to be the summer day trip event to go to.

NEW for this year the team will be taking the Fleadh journey back to where it starts, the Provincial Fleadh’s. The four provinces are covered – Connaught in Ballinamore, Co Leitrim on July 8th, Leinster in Bagnelstown on July 15th then it’s a trip to Ennis, Co Clare for the Munster Fleadh on Sunday 22nd July and finally finishing in Castlewellan, Co Down for the Ulster Fleadh on July 29th. Each show air from 2000hrs to 2130hrs, just in time to tune in to the Sunday Game! The Provincial Fleadh’s are where the competitions are fierce, getting a place at the All-Ireland’s is a huge pride in the traditional music community, expect incredible music from new and well-known talent!
