Feile an Neidín

April 5th – 7th, 2013

Following the huge success playing host to two Munster Fleadh’s, the town of Kenmare, Co. Kerry has decided to start it’s own annual Kenmare Irish Music Festival, Feile an Neidín. Touted by many since the 2008/10 Munster Fleadh’s as the ideal events setting, Kenmare will hold the festival on the weekend after Easter every year, the inaugural festival being April 5th, 6th and 7th, 2013. The launch festival coincides with the year of The Gathering and running with the theme of Return to the Nest hopes to draw people from all over the country, and indeed the world, back to An Neidín (the little nest!).
The weekend will see many well–known players acting as core musicians at sessions in the numerous venues during the whole of the weekend, also workshops for all instruments, story– telling for kids, Kenmare Bay boat trip sessions, two big name headline acts in the Arts Centre and a big Céilí with the famous Kilfenora Céilí Band!

Kenmare is very excited about this and would love you all to come….. PUT IT IN YOUR DIARY!!!!!
