Fleadh 2016

   The Fleadh Down in Ennis

On the 19th of August down in Ennis my band was playing in u12 Ceilí Band competition. Our competition started at 1:30pm. We were first up because the first band didn’t show up. We were very nervous because we didn’t want to mess up. When were on and we started our jig and it went really well and so did our reel. Altogether we were really happy. After about 17 performances and an hour’s wait the judge stepped up to tell the results. We were sitting in our seats tensely waiting for the judge to announce it. Unfortunately we didn’t get through. I couldn’t believe it. We played out of our skin. However, after a while we got over it.  We’ll be back next year and try to get there again.
