Echoes from Munster Fleadh
Congratulations continue to arrive from many quarters following the Fleadh in Dungarvan. There is no doubt the event will have a long-term effect with many promising to return for holidays. A point that has been made over and over concerns the friendliness of the people especially the stewards and also the staff of various hostelries.
