The Mullingar Branch & Westmeath Comhaltas, in conjunction with the Westmeath County Council, are set to host an official visit of delegates and decision makers within the wider branch of Leinster Comhaltas on Saturday 17th November 2018. The visit, which is now part of the authorised bid process, will take in a tour of Mullingar and the wider area, lunch in the Greville Arms Hotel and a closing reception in Belvedere House.

In preparation for this integral day for the Mullingar Bid, the Mullingar Fleadh Bid Committee are organising a Public Meeting (25th October at 6.30pm) to officially launch the Bid document and to discuss the visit on the 17th November.

Joe Connaire, Chair of Westmeath Comhaltas said, “As the people of Mullingar know we are well underway with our Bid to host the Fleadh in Mullingar in either 2020 or 2021. To aid our Bid, we have invited the Leinster Delegates down to Mullingar to show them all our town has to offer and how it would be the ideal location to host the national Fleadh. But we can’t do this alone.

We are calling on the people of Mullingar to help us show a Cead Mile Fáilte to the Delegates. If you are a business owner why not put up a welcome sign on your window or pedestrians if you see us touring the street with the Delegates, why not come to say hello and let them know what it would mean for Mullingar to host the Fleadh once again.

We have been working on our Bid document for a number of months and hope to launch it and our video at the next public meeting on the 25th of October. So please can everyone attend and helps us get this over the line – we really need your support now, on the 17th November and in the coming months.

I would really like to take this opportunity to say thanks all those who have supported us this far with particular reference to Westmeath County Council for their continuing support.”
