Sligo gordon brian quinn 160814Pictured left is Gordon Hotchkiss interviewing Brian Quinn of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann in Sligo on Saturday afternoon during the broadcast. The Fleadh is a competition for amateur musicians.

The focus was always on individual ability and so it is to this day. Few places in the western world have managed to maintain their musical traditions as successfully as Ireland has. The Fleadh is the showcasing of this tradition as well as  a celebration of the individual skills of the competitors. It is a valuable testament to creativity. It is a celebration of the new ways for doing the old things. It is a great holiday. It is a big party.
