The Wicklow Fleadh Ceol took place on Saturday 7th May in Dominican College Wicklow Town.
Children and senior musicians from across the county flocked to the town celebration of the return Irish traditional music after 2 years of cancelled competitions and Fleadh events. Competitors ranged from under 10 to senior age brackets and branches from Bray CCÉ, The Boathouse Wicklow Town, Wicklow Miners of Avoca, Anne Devlin CCÉ Aughrim, Roundwood CCÉ and Tinahealy CCÉ all featured in the 2022 winners table.
The vast amount of work put into the event by the Wicklow Comhaltas County Board, headed by secretary Tracey Maguire, led to a greatly successful day from start to finish. Following the competitions, a celebration session was hosted in Fitzpatrick’s bar and lounge on main street Wicklow, with musicians from across the county sharing tunes and songs together once again.
Musicians who placed first or second in their category will progress to the Leinster Fleadh Ceol which takes place in Portlaoise between 8-10th July. Very best of luck to our Wicklow musicians from the community of County Wicklow.
