The Fifth annual Iúr Cinn Fleadh takes place in many venues throughout Newry city from Thursday 6 to Sunday 9 September 2018 with over 60 fantastic events.

Headlining on stage at Newry Town Hall on the Friday night this year is the incredible Sharon Shannon, accompanied by Jim Murray and Jack Maher.

The now well established Thursday night comedy slot sees local lad Kieran Cunningham as Dave Allen in his “From the Cradle to the Grave” show in the Sean Hollywood Arts Centre.

The veritable feast of traditional and folk music is just getting better and better, growing in strength each year that passes. This year for the first time organisers can rightly say it’s an ‘International’ festival, with San Francisco residents Noctambule and Spanish band Transgroak performing during the festival. Most events are free.
