I spent this past weekend in Chicago with my kids. My eldest is very active in traditional Irish music and dance and competed in the Fleadh.
The Fleadh is where kids compete for a spot in the All-Ireland finals in Cavan, Ireland. Whoever wins the All-Ireland final is considered the best in the world.
Here is video of my kid leading his Ceili band (he's on drums).. oh, and they won first place!
Ireland in August. Woot woot.
