Fleadh Volunteers Desperately Needed!

Maureen Donachie is coordinating this year’s Fleadh volunteers and she reports the volunteer situation for the Saturday of the Fleadh isn’t looking good!   On Saturday, she needs at least 6 more bodies from 8 to noon and 6 more bodies from noon to 4 or else she will need to schedule volunteers for 8 hour shifts, something which she absolutely wants to avoid.

She also need bodies on Sunday to work the duets and trios, and cover the doors for the ceili band comps.

Maureen is looking for branch members to step forward and volunteer their time!  If you can help out during any of these times, please absolutely reach out to Maureen Donachie at
