Deireadh Seachtaine Amhránaíochta, Ceoil agus Damhsa
A Celebration of traditional Irish music, song and dance

Ó 1995 ar aghaidh, tá clú agus cáil ar Fhéile Chois Cuain mar cheann de na féilte is fearr i saol an cheoil thraidisiúnta. Bliain i ndiaidh bliana, tarraingíonn áilleacht nádúrtha an cheantair daoine as gach cearn den tír agus cuirtear fáilte mhór chroíúil roimh cheoltóirí, amhránaithe agus cuairteoirí chun na háite.

De bharr phaindéim an choróinvíris a bhuail an domhan in 2020, ní raibh duine ná deoraí ar shráideanna Chluain Cearbán an deireadh seachtaine saoire bainc i mí na Bealtaine den chéad uair i gceathrú céid! Bhí na pubanna dúnta agus ní raibh nóta ceoil le cloisteáil. Bhí muid ag súil go bhféadfadh muid an fhéile a reáchtáil arís in 2021 agus go mbeadh na sluaite móra in ann sult a bhaint as an atmaisféar speisialta agus as an ndraíocht a bhaineann leis an bhféile. Faraor, de dheasca na srianta atá i bhfeidhm go fóill in Éirinn, ní raibh an dara rogha againn ach féile fhíorúil a shocrú i mbliana.

Tá ríméad orainn a fhógairt go bhfuil clár bríomhar ar líne curtha le chéile againn agus tá súil againn go mbainfidh seanchairde na Féile agus daoine nua leas agus spraoi as na ceardlanna, na ceolchoirmeacha agus na físeáin a bheidh ar siúl. Le cúnamh Dé, beidh muid in ann fáilte mhór a chur romhaibh uilig arís in 2022. Tugaigí aire daoibh féin idir an dá linn.

Since 1995, the May bank holiday weekend in Louisburgh has been the setting for one of the Ireland’s premier traditional arts festivals. The combination of the natural beauty of the area, the warm welcome for visitors and the presence of Ireland’s finest traditional artists combine
to give Féile Chois Cuain a very special atmosphere.

The emergence of a global pandemic in 2020 meant that for the first time in a quarter of a century on the May bank holiday weekend, the streets of Louisburgh were deserted, pubs were closed and not a note of music was to be heard. We would have hoped that 2021 would see the return of Féile Chois Cuain with large crowds of visitors experiencing the joy of the musical weekend, however, the current restrictions are such that the only choice available was to run the festival on a virtual platform.

We are delighted to announce that we have put together a program of concerts and workshops which will be delivered online. We hope they will be enjoyed by many of you who have regularly attended Féile Chois Cuain, along with some newcomers who will hopefully be able to experience the re-emergence of a real Féile Chois Cuain in 2022!
