Fleadh Cheoil 40 Years Ago

On 7 July 1974 RTÉ Television broadcast footage of a Fleadh Cheoil at Gormanston, Co. Meath.

The event took place at the Franciscan college Gormanston.

A Canadian television recording crew were there to capture the event with dancers and musicians, including Ted Furey playing the fiddle.

We think the footage may also include sean nós singer Niamh Parsons. If you recognise Niamh or anyone else in the footage, please let us know at archives@rte.ie or via Twitter @RTEArchives
