Fleadh Cheoil na Éireann Drogheda
Well. Fleadh Cheoil na Éireann Drogheda 2018 is over... Thousands of photos taken, over 45 miles of walking, meeting thousands of people from all over Ireland and abroad. Tired? Maybe just body, but not my soul. Happy? Yes, it's been the best week in almost my 14 years in Ireland and Drogheda. Last week there was no such a thing as Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday etc . - every day was Fleadhday. Amazing feeling waking up in the morning when you still can hear Irish music & camera shutter sound in your head :) It was great to see so many talented musicians and so many happy people around. Thank you all involved and especially people who planted this seed years ago! I think Drogheda woke up now and left a huge mark in the history, music, and culture! Roll on 2019!
