PROGRAMME OF EVENTS

Céad Míle Fáilte
Teachtaireacht ónár gcathaoirleach, Eddie Copeland
Is deacair a chreidbheáil go bhfuil 23ú Féile Ard Eoin buailte linn agus go bhfuil sé bliain iomlán ó rinne
muid scoth féile do Bhéal Feirste.

A Hundred Thousand Welcomes
A Welcome Message from our Chairperson, Eddie Copeland
It’s hard to believe that this is the 23rd year of the Fleadh in Ardoyne, and that twelve months have flown by since the
last time this community made our Fleadh -- which is undoubtedly a highlight of all the festivals across the city.
Budgetary restraints from funders have made life more difficult for the organising committee, all the organisation of
the Fleadh is carried out without any paid workers and no permanent base. It has been a struggle to gather up the

Cé go bhfuil srianta airgeadais orainn, d'éirigh linn clár imeachtaí a eagrú a mbainfidh an pobal sult as ag
deireadh seachtaine fada sin Mhí Lúnasa. Cad é na buanna ar leith a bhaineann le Fleadh Ard Eoin? Ní
deacair sin a fhreagairt: an pobal féin! Níl a sárú le fáil i mBéal Feirste nó in áiteanna eile - na slóite sin a
thagann le chéile agus a chaitheann tréan ama go deonach ar son an phobail. Ábhar mór bróid atá ann a rá
gurb as Ard Eoin thú!
Ar na na himeachtaí is mó atá ar an chlár tá imeachtaí do pháistí eagraithe ar nós na Maidineacha Craic do
Theaghlaigh, Gig Rigs, Laetha Spóirt agus Campa Iontach Sacair le ceachtanna ó Joe Gormley is ó Liam
Boyce as Cliftonville.

Níl de dhíth anois ach dea-aimsir le cuidiú linn an sult is mó a bhaint as Fleadh 2013.

August. So, what makes Ardoyne Fleadh so special? The answer is simple; it’s you, the people. Nowhere in Belfast or
further afield do people come together in such numbers and give unselfishly of themselves to the betterment of the
entire community. You should be proud to say that you are from Ardoyne.
Highlights this year include an array of activities for people of all ages, with the emphasis put on Children’s Events -

As an chuidiú maoinithe agus as an urraíocht, tá coiste Fhleadh Ard Eoin an-bhuíoch go deo do.

Much has happened to Bridie in the last few years and she shares this all with her
confidante George, as well as a few very large Belfast Martinis. With her unique brand of
humour and language, which would shock a sailor, Bridie’s Rollercoaster Life continues
and she updates George on all that has happened from their last night together, as well
as letting him in on some of her past secrets, and one shocker in particular.
Donna O’ Connor reprises her role as Bridie Murphy, in this new sequel to the award
winning comedy ‘A Night with George’.

JORDAN O’ KEEFE

19 year old Irish singer-songwriter Jordan O'Keefe has catapulted himself into one of the
hottest properties in the UK music scene.
He memorably set Britain’s Got Talent on fire this year with his memorable audition of One
Directions 'Little Things', wowing the judges and even causing Simon Cowell to predict 'very
big things' for the likable 19 year old Derry native with the winning smile.
Big things did indeed happen as he cruised through the semi's, before 13 million people
tuned in to watch his nerve wracking battle in the final. 
He didn’t win, but neither did Olly Murs, One Direction or JLS and their careers don’t exactly
suffer, did they?
With over 4 million Youtube views and over 116,000 followers on Twitter, big things
definitely do look set to happen for our Jordan. He has already duetted with Ed Sheeran and
has several members of One Direction following him on Twitter and since coming off the
show he has been in high demand with appearances at shows and festivals across the UK
and Ireland, including supporting slots for JLS and a memorable appearance for the G8
summit.

knockout stages of the show. He admitted that the show had left him with more fans than
ever before, and plenty of girls chasing after him! Conor has taken time off from the studio
where he is recording some new material for his forthcoming album to appear in his
hometown at this year’s Ardoyne Fleadh.

AIDAN LOGAN
Aidan Logan is a singer-songwriter and guitar player from Belfast. His music ranges from
slow ballads and love songs to upbeat happy numbers. Aidan has been playing guitar and
attempting to write for about 10/11 years, clinging to the belief that practice makes perfect,
and you improve with age. His main focus is song-writing, but has recently begun
performing more with his new band.
