A Celebration of traditional Irish music and song
Deireadh Seachtaine Amhránaiochta, Ceoil agus Damhsa
Louisburgh is a small town on the western seaboard situated in an area of great natural beauty, rich in heritage and tradition. Féile Chois Cuain is an annual festival which celebrates this cultural heritage and it has a well-deserved reputation as one of Ireland’s premier traditional arts festivals. It is a magical weekend of music, song and dance, where an extraordinary atmosphere prevails as old friends get together and new friendships are forged. This year we celebrate the 25th Féile Chois Cuain and as we approach this milestone, we fondly remember those who have visited in the past and are no longer with us, while preparing to welcome all to this year’s event, many of whom are old friends who make it an annual trip. We look forward to the future, in the hope that the next 25 years of Féile Chois Cuain will be as enjoyable and memorable as the last 25!
Féile dhátheangach iontach is í an Fhéile atá ag tarraingt scoth na gceoltóirí agus na n-amhránaithe ó chuile chearn den tíre chuici le cúig bliana is fiche. A buíochas leis na haíonna agus leis na cuairteoirí sin, tá cáil i bhfad is i gcéin ar Fhéile Chois Cuain i measc lucht leanúna na n-ealaíon traidisiúnta. Deireadh seachtaine draíochtúil ar leith atá san Fhéile ina mbíonn seanchairde agus cairde nua ag casadh ar a chéile bliain i ndiaidh bliana. Is bliain an-speisialta í seo dúinn agus muid ag ceiliúradh 25 bliain ar an bhfód. Beidh muid ag cuimhneamh ar na daoine nach bhfuil linn a thuilleadh agus muid ag fáil faoi réir le fáilte mhór a chur roimh na ceoltóirí agus na hamhránaithe a thagann chuile bhliain. Is léir go bhfuil an Fhéile ag dul ó neart go neart agus tá clár speisialta curtha le chéile againn daoibh arís i mbliana. Tá muid ag súil go mór leis an todhchaí agus go mbeidh an chéad 25 bliain chomh maith leis an 25 bliain roimhe seo!
