Bonn Óir Sheán Ó Riada

Tá Peadar Ó Riad ag glacadh le hiarratais anois don chomórtas bliantúil ceoil i gcuimhne a athair, Seán Ó Riada. Tá comórtas na bliana seo dírithe ar na huirlisí giolcaigh miotail – bosca ceoil, consairtín, orgán béil srl. Bronnfar bonn óir agus duais airgid €2500 ar cheoltóir amháin ag ceolchoirm mhór in Óstán an Rochestown Park i gCorcaigh i mí Eanáir.

Anuraidh, ba iad na píobaí agus an chruit na huirlisí a bhí i gceist, agus ba iad an píobaire Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn as Muineachán agus an cruitire Oisín Morrison as BÁC a thug na boinn óir leo.

Le cur isteach ar an gcomórtas, ba cheart do cheoltóirí 5 phíosa ceoil a thaifead agus iad a uaslódáil go dtí an suíomh idirlín www.cuireadhchuneoil.ie, nó iad a chur ar dhlúthdhiosca agus iad a chur sa phost chuig Peadar Ó Riada i gCúil Aodha. Tá na sonraí uilig le fáil ar an suíomh.

Beifear ag glacadh le hiarratais go dtí 6 Meán Fómhair. Moltar dóibh siúd ar mhaith leo cur isteach ar an gcomórtas é sin a dhéanamh go luath, gan a bheith ag fanacht go dtí an dáta deiridh.

Roghnófar 15 iomaitheoir don ghearrliosta, agus tabharfar cuireadh dóibh siúd seinm ar stáitse ag ceolchoirm mhór in Óstán an Rochestown Park i gCorcaigh ar 24 Eanáir, áit a roghnófar an buaiteoir.

The competition for the Seán Ó Riada Gold Medal 2013 is now open to entries from metal reed instruments – box, concertina and mouth organ. One overall winner will be chosen, and will be presented with a Seán Ó Riada gold medal, and prize money of €2500, at a gala concert in Cork in January to be broadcast live.

Last year’s competition was open to harp and pipes, and the competition was won by Monaghan piper Tiarnán Ó Duinnchinn and harpist Oisín Morrison from Dublin.

To enter, musicians should record 5 pieces of music and upload them to www.cuireadhchunceoil.ie , or alternatively burn them to CD and send them to Peadar Ó Riada. Full details are on the website. The closing date for entries is 6 September. Those intending to enter are advised to do so as soon as possible, rather than waiting for the closing date.

15 musicians will be shortlisted, and they will take part in a concert on 24 January in the Rochestown Park Hotel in Cork, where the winner will be chosen.
