Chairperson’s Greetings May 2014

A chairde,

Tara Lynch, Chairperson

 Hats off to Co-chairs Tom Vesey, Paul Keating, and Frankie McCormack and the Mid-Atlantic Region team of volunteers for a fantastic weekend in Parsippany, NJ ~ one to remember. The NA Convention, the Mid-Atlantic Fleadh, and the Hall of Fame induction were an immense undertaking. It was terrific to see such a great contingent from the branch there to support the event. Everywhere I looked I could see them partaking in music sessions, set dancing, singing and reuniting with friends from Ireland, Canada and the USA.

Lisa Coyne, Executive Director of the music school, and I congratulate all the Fleadh competitors, especially the first-timers…you were so brave…we are very proud of you! A big THANK YOU to all the parents, teachers, coaches and especially Sean Clohessy, our volunteer coach, for working with our Réaltai Geala ~ “Bright Stars” ensemble! Look for final placement results in the next newsletter. 

The second annual Féile Cheoil will be held Sat., May 17th in Melrose (see flyer). The fundraiser is to support the Trad Youth Exchange Program. Fifteen of our young musicians will be meeting with fifteen youngsters from the Tulog Céili Band in Tulla, County Clare. The Tulog group will be coming to Boston in November 2014 and our group travels in February 2015. Proceeds will help defray travel costs. Come out for a few tunes during the day, either to participate or compete. “Open The Door For Three” finale concert in the evening ~ not to be missed!

Happy Mother’s Day…hope it’s perfect in every way. 

God bless everyone . . . Tara Lynch, Chairperson
