As i look out across the lake from Castle View B&B, i have to say Happy Birthday to W.B Yeats, 149 years ago today, he was born. We have WB Yeats Society of New York, London, Sligo and soon a new one in County Leitrim. He was a man with great poetry. This music is from our friends across the water

Welcome to the Fleadh!“Céad Míle Fáilte – welcome one and all to the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann
The Fleadh Cheoil is the world’s biggest and best traditional Irish music festival and will take place in Sligo between 10th-17th August 2014.
Sligo is located in the north west of Ireland and is famous for its beauty, heritage and culture. We welcome visitors to come and sample each of these during what will be a wonderful celebration of music, fun filled days and family events in August.
So whether you’re a competitor, a participant in Scoil Éigse, or simply a music fan, come and experience the fun of the Fleadh. And with our beaches, mountains and so many things to do, we hope you’ll want to come back again and again.”
