Smiths Supporting Fleadh Drogheda

Best of Luck!

Here at Smiths of Drogheda we love to show our support to the local community and today is D-DAY - As the Fleadh Drogheda Bid Committee makes the final pitch to Comhaltas to host Ireland's Biggest Festival in 2018.

Their journey started in 2011, during Local Heroes TV programme when Noel Toolan hosted a Tourism Brainstorm and Rory Scott suggested Drogheda should bid for the Fleadh. Enter Lolo Robinson and The Branigan family along with Drogheda Comhaltas and the process began.

This will be my fifth and final year bidding and it is a pivotal moment for me personally and all those who have contributed to the effort in that period.

Thanks to a very hard working committee for all their input, drive and enthusiasm - Lolo Robinson, Rory Scott, Paddy Branigan, Orla Branigan, Ciara Branigan, Karen Devine, Eddie Phelan, Joan Martin, Frank Maher, Caroline Kavanagh, Liam Drew, Supt Andy Watters, Noelle Bowe and last but not least the legend John Watts.
