Newry’s Virtual Iúr Cinn Fleadh is not quite ready
Immense technical challenges have meant that 2020 Iúr Cinn Fleadh has had to be postponed again.
The Fleadh committee will be rescheduling the event as soon as they can. Keep an eye here or the official social media channels for the new dates.
The six-year journey to transform the historic Albert Basin at Newry, Northern Ireland, into a spectacular ‘people’s park’ will reach a major milestone – but not this weekend (6th-7th November).
Hundreds of hours of complex computer coding have gone into creating a wondrous 3D world for 2020 Iúr Cinn Fleadh – and many more hours need to be invested into this complex project to make it work.
Described as ‘part outdoor concert, part virtual reality and part video game’, the Virtual 2020 Iúr Cinn Fleadh is a highly sophisticated piece of computer engineering. Attendees will be able to ‘walk’ around the venue and talk to fellow festivalgoers in what promises to be a completely unique ground-breaking experience. But not quite yet.
