This years Fleadh Cheoil Na hEireann in Ennis once again proved successful for many local musicians with Warrenpoint’s, Rinn Mhic Giolla Rua Comhaltas toasting the success of their All Ireland medal winner Oisin McCann and An Bonnan Buí Comhaltas, Crossmaglen similarly congratulating member Iarla McMahon for his All Ireland medal.

Other local winners included Thomas Magee, CCÉ, Rinn Mhic Giolla Rua; Holy Cross Accordion Band, Attical and Sean O'Neill, Newcastle CCÉ.

Seventeen year old Oisin McCann from Mayobridge may be waiting for his GCSE Results from St Louis Grammar School in Kilkeel this Thursday but it didn’t stop him from winning a medal for his Slow Air on the Whistle at Ennis at the weekend. He already has an All Ireland medal in Ceili Dancing as well as Ulster successes in Set Dancing, flute, whistle and bodhran.

Oisin is playing in new band ‘A Fair Distance’ on the 10th of September in support of Paddy Casey at The Bank Nightclub in Newry as part of Iúr Cinn Fleadh. Oisin is accompanied in the band by Miadhachlughain O’Donnell from Castlewellan on the Flute, Michael Gaffney from Bangor on Guitar and Tiernan McQuade from Monaghan on the Bodhran. Miadhachlughain is also an All Ireland Flute winner from 2014.

Iarla McMahon from Crossmaglen won an All Ireland medal with the Uilleann Pipes in the under 12 category as well as third in the whistle. A pupil of Armagh Pipers Club and member of An Bonnan Buí CCE Iarla is certainly one to watch.
