2024 Feis Shligigh Festival

RULE 21: Entries on the official Feis Shligigh Online entry System, accompanied by a full entry fee (except for Irish dancing) must reach the secretary of the particular section not later than the extended deadline Thursday 15th February 2024. After this date entries may be accepted only at the discretion of the executive committee.

Feis Shligigh was founded in 1903 as a Gaelic Feis for Connacht. The aim is the revival of our national Language and Heritage. Dr. Douglas Hyde, the first President of Ireland, adjudicated the Irish Language Competitions in those early days. After a few years, the Feis lapsed until 1929 and since then has continued to grow from year to year to the present day. All sections of the Feis ran concurrently during Easter Week until 2006 when, because of increasing numbers of competitors, it now takes place over 3 weekends before Easter ending with 4 days of Drama during Holy Week.
