A choir's eye view of Fleadh 2012 We had a great view of the 2012 Fleadh Cheoil as we performed with the Cavan Sinfonia in the arch at Newcourt again this year. Sue Donohue King, the Musical Director for both groups, put together a super showcase with a variety of Irish airs and songs for us to play and sing together. The crowds on the street seemed to enjoy it all, and to be honest so did we! Not only did Sue conduct us all, she played the accordion AND managed some lighting quick costume changes between songs. Pictured here is a 'choir's eye view' of the proceedings.
