Boasting a wide range of categories, often with 20-25 participants per competition, Sligo Feis Ceoil is a renowned platform for budding artists and established talent to compete against like- minded and gifted individuals.

For the past number of years The Academy of Music Tullamore has done remarkably well, with their hardworking students greatly impressing a team of vastly experienced adjudicators. This year was certainly no exception with the following students joining a long list of prominent winners.

1st place Junior Vocal Solo Under 10 went to 9 year old Katie Creggy of Moate, Co. Westmeath.
