Feis Ceoil is an important annual festival in the musical calendar. ‘Set up in 1896, Feis Ceoil Association promotes excellence in the learning and performance of music across all ages, levels and disciplines. We run an annual festival before Easter each year in Dublin which comprises almost 200 competitions, attracting over 4,000 participants from all over the island of Ireland.
