Does anyone on the list know when the American Fleadh Cheoil competitons
will be held? I've been thinking about trying to qualify, as I'm hoping
to be in Ireland this summer (not that I'd have a chance at the All-Ireland,
but it might be kind of fun to compete). We don't have a CCE branch that
I know of in Los Angeles, so I'm not technically affiliated with a branch.
Would that matter? Has anyone out there ever competed? Any advice to share
with me? Are there more than one qualifying location and is one "easier"
than the other? Who does one contact to "sign up"?
