Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann Opening Céilí with The Tulla Céilí Band

Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann Céilí with The Tulla Céilí Band on Sunday 14th August. Dancing 9.30 – 12.30.

The Tulla Céilí Band kicks off a mighty week of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann Céilís in Cois na hAbhna. The band was formed in 1946 by Paddy Canny and PJ Hayes - their passion for traditional Irish music and their talent set the tone for the band. Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is delightd that The Tulla Céilí Band has still found the time in the midst of its 70th birthday celebrations to play for the opening Céili. In the years since it’s founding, the band has toured all over the world and even played in New York City’s Carnegie Hall. On their trip to America in 1997, the band received a presentation from Mayor Rudolf Guiliani at New York City Hall. In recent years, the Tulla Céilí Band has concentrated on what they do best, and with the revivals in Irish music and set dancing, they have become more popular than ever. On Sunday 14th August, there is an opportunity to hear them and dance to their unique music. Enjoy! For more Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann information go to www.fleadhcheoil.ie
