In photos: The last weekend of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann

Thousands gather in Cavan town for final days of the Fleadh.

AS THE FLEADH Cheoil na hÉireann enters its final days, thousands of people continue to gather in Cavan to celebrate traditional Irish music.

While some are simply spectators soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying the multitude of gigs, sessions and concerts offered over the ten-day festival, others have travelled from all over the world to compete against their fellow musicians.

Photocall’s Laura Hutton was on hand to capture some colourful images around Cavan town today:
