On behalf of the Fleadh Executive Committee it is with pleasure that we extend a “Go Raibh Maith agat” to all who made Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann the huge success that it was.
The success of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2018 is the result of much collaboration across all the communities of Drogheda and further afield. We thank the many Volunteers for their hard work and dedication. The Businesses & Traders, The Port Company, Community Groups, Church Organisations, Schools Board of Management, local property owners and service providers, we acknowledge the work of the statutory emergency services including Fire Service, Gardaí, HSE, Coastguard, Civil Defence and the Voluntary Aid Societies. We acknowledge the staff of Louth County Council for their diligent work in maintaining and presenting the town in a manner that did Drogheda proud. The cooperation received by residents and motorists all contributed to making Drogheda a welcoming and pleasant place to visit. We acknowledge the generous support of our sponsors and friends of the Fleadh. We acknowledge and thank the media local, national and international for their coverage. We acknowledge the staff of our associates – Safe Events Ltd and Insight Consultants Ltd. We thank Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann for choosing Drogheda as the venue. Finally we thank the members of the Fleadh Executive Committee & local Comhaltas members who we hope will all join with us to do it all again in 2019.
