Four of the performers at the 2014 Sober St. Patrick’s Day® event in NYC qualified to compete at Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2014 (All-Ireland music championships), to be held in Sligo Town from August 14th thru August 17th. The Fee sisters – Angela, Catriona, Mairéad – and Haley Richardson competed at the eastern North American qualifying competitions, and Haley will be representing the United States in a duet, a trio, as well as two individual fiddle events in the Under 12 age group. In 2013, she placed first in both of those solo competitions! Good luck, Haley!

Our All-Star Céilí Band musicians at the NYC Sober St. Patrick’s Day® event – John Whelan, Brian Conway, Brendan Dolan, Brendan Fahey, Michael Fee, Ivan Goff – and our piper, Lisa Farber, hold numerous All-Ireland medals and / or have students who have won in the All-Ireland competitions… An indication of the enormous talent we are proud to spotlight at our events! www.SoberStPatricksDay.org
