The future of our traditional music, singing and dance is always in the hands of the “Aos Óg”, the young generation. The Aos Óg Concert has always been a key event in the Fleadh Nua, which takes place in Ennis each year.

This year, the concert will feature some of the best young traditional musicians, singers and dancers from Co. Clare and beyond.
