On Monday night last April 13th Fleadh an Chontae 2015 was officially launched in the Bridge House, Golden.

A large attendance of guests were treated to a very enjoyable night of lively music provided by local musicians.

It was heartwarming to see the mix of young and more seasoned musician gel together to provide some excellent entertainment.

John Geehan, Chairman Craobh Caiseal Mumhan who were tasked with organising the week long event welcomed all present to the launch. Although his own involvement was greatly reduced due to a health issue, he has no doubt the committee (augmented by able volunteers from the village) will have everything ship shape come May 10th. Minister of State Tom Hayes, said he was delighted to be present at the launch. It was a great honour he said for the parish of Golden- Kilfeacle to be asked to stage the event and when that parish is asked to do something they always do it well.
