Feis Ceoil 1916: The show must go on!

4 October, 2016 @ 1:10 pm

The Feis Ceoil festival of 1916 was due to take place during the week after the Rising. Due to the tenacity of the Feis committee, rather than cancel, the festival was simply postponed until July. This is the story of the planning, the competitors, the event itself and the reactions of the time.

David Mooney is Head of the Department of Keyboard Studies at the DIT Conservatory of Music and Drama and former chairman of the Feis Ceoil.

Booking is required. Please contact the Music Library at + 353 1 8734333 or by email at musiclibrary@dublincity.ie
