Trad goes to the shops

Lighten your load by listening to some of our finest young local trad musicians and dancers over the Fleadh weekend at the Quays and Buttercrane shopping centres.


Marvel at the majesty of traditional dance – with the Scoil Rince de Barra school of Irish dancing at the Buttercrane Shopping Centre on Saturday 26 August from 2-4.30pm.

Warrenpoint Comhaltas is a non-profit organisation that promotes Irish traditional song, music, language and dance.

They’ll bring their magic to the Buttercrane on Sunday 27 August from 2-4pm.


The Sinead Nolan School of Irish dancing will delight shoppers at The Quays on Sunday 27 August from 3-5pm.
