We can’t fleadh like it’s 1999 … the world has changed after all. But that won’t stop
us channelling the epic energy of Irish traditional music at its finest. At home, on stage, on your favourite landmark (careful now) just share your flair using #RTÉFleadhFíorúil or #RTÉVirtualFleadh and we’ll do the rest. And remember, keep it socially distant.
We might not be “going to the Fleadh” this year, so let Comhaltas and RTÉ bring the Fleadh to you. Starting on Tuesday August 4th, we are calling out to you … musicians, music lovers and Fleadh devotees everywhere – in Ireland and abroad – to show us what you’ve got. We will aim to capture the spirit of the Fleadh as seen on street corners, in bars, on stages – the music of the people, played by the people. Even though we won’t all be gathering in Mullingar, we will gather virtually, and RTÉ will curate and showcase the best of what we get.
Share your videos and pics on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram from next Tuesday using #RTÉFleadhFíorúil or #RTÉVirtualFleadh.
Follow @rte on Twitter and /ExploreRTE on Facebook and Insta next week to watch it all play out.
