Swinford hosted a magnificent Fleadh Cheoil Mhaigh Eo last year and it is no stranger to Fleadhanna Cheoil having hosted a number of County Fleadhs and Provincial Fleadhs over the years.
Indeed Swinford hosted Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in 1961, an event that was remembered at celebrations just three years ago.
The Mayo Fleadh Cheoil has taken on added significance these past few years and is now a major cultural event on the county calendar.
Fleadh Cheoil Mhaigh Eo 2014 takes place on the 10th and 11th May and will be preceded by a week of various cultural events.
The east Mayo town is an ideal venue for Fleadh Cheoil Mhaigh Eo. East Mayo always had, and still has, a rich tradition of traditional music, song, and dance.
An extremely hard working local committee, under the watchful eyes of local Chairperson Barbara Fogarty and local Secretary, Maureen Noone have put in long hours these past few months to ensure that Fleadh Mhaigh Eo 2014 will be even more successful than last year and that there will be something for everybody.
