The atmospheric and historical Teach Dolmain pub is one of the venues for the ‘mini-fleadh’ weekend, but the session may move around the town as sessions normally do! Kicking off on Friday evening, the 19th June, a fine caliber of musicians will participate including Tom Morrow (fiddle), Triona Flavin (flute), John Morrow (banjo), Leonard Barry (uileann pipes), Geraldine Clancy (fiddle), Sean Fitzpatrick (guitar) and John Joe Kelly (bodhrán) as well as a many more local and visiting musicians, singers and dancers.

On Saturday 20th, throughout the day the session will provide an ideal introduction to the much anticipated reunion concert of the talented traditional trio Bríd Harper, Steve Cooney and Dermot Byrne in the Town Hall at 8pm. For those with stamina, the session will continue on through Sunday 21st June and is an ideal hair of the dog! Come prepared for a traditional weekend to remember when Ireland’s finest musicians descend upon the Teach Dolmain. The floor boards will be hopping!
