2011 Cavan Fleadh Cheoil 

All the family had a ball at the 2011 Cavan Fleadh Cheoil , great crowds and beautiful music on the streets of Cavan. Really impressed with all the young kids playing such good music. And guess what Cavan will host the 2012 Fleadh Cheoil-third year in a row-looking forward to it already. Here are some images from the 2011 Fleadh Cheoil more pictures can be found on Lake Avenue House’s face book page
