Meitheal Residential Summer School

July 20th – 24th, 2015

Meitheal Residential Summer School for high–competency young trad musicians will run from July 20th to 24th, 2015, just after Fleádh Cheoil na Mumhan. Engagement in Irish instrumental music of all shades and colours from a multitude of angles will be the order of the day as always. The closing date for Meitheal applications this year is Friday March 27th.

Last year’s students still enthuse about the finale concert at the Limetree Theatre in Limerick which was a unique experience in such a professional, sophisticated setting with beautiful lighting and was broadcast on RnaG at a later date.

Meitheal is going back again to Villiers this year, a private campus on spacious grounds on the outskirts of Limerick City. The schedule is non–stop from 8.30 in the morning til 11.30 at night with barely a minute to draw breath. Food and accommodation are all part of the deal.
