Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann have confirmed that Fleadh 2021 will not go ahead due to Covid-19. It will be the first time since 1951that the event has been disrupted like this. There will be no county, province or national competition, these will be replaced by FleadhFest 2020, a factual-virtual celebration of the Fleadh at all levels which will depict the vitality and universal appeal of Irish culture. Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann said FleadhFest in 2021 promises to be one of the most interesting and comprehensive cultural responses to COVID-19 nationwide and among the Irish diaspora.
