Chairman of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2017 Frank Whelan likes to let the music do the talking, so when he went to the Clare FM studios on Monday morning to discuss #fleadh2017 in Ennis, he took Blackie O’Connell, Siobhan Peoples and Michael Queally along.
The music starts about 50 seconds in - and feel free to help Blackie out naming the tunes!

This is one of the earliest nationally televised performances of the McNiff Dancers. This Ulster style of Irish dance, known for its...
