Tugtar cuireadh duit teacht í láthair ag seoladh  Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2011

Obelisk is thrilled to support the Fleadh Cheoil. Obelisk's headquarters' are in Cavan, so it all the more exciting to support such an important, local event.

The Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann is one the largest traditional music festivals in the world. Cavan has the honour of hosting the festival for the second year running. Last year's festival was commented on as being one of the most enjoyable festivals and the best branded family events in the history of the Fleadh Cheoil.

Obelisk has always strived to support local initiatives and continues to support local GAA teams, and other local enterprises. Supporting our local community builds stronger communities by sustaining vibrant town centres, linking neighbours in a web of economic and social relationships, and contributing to important local causes. Obelisk understands that it is the success of locally owned businesses that provides real-life inspiration to young people in the community. For businesses to support locally it helps create and develop community awareness of the advantages and benefits of supporting local businesses and community facilities.

Therefore Obelisk is delighted to be able to support a positive event for the community. The economic impact of the Fleadh Cheoil Festival 2010 on the Cavan region is estimated at €19.7M (expenditure by overseas and domestic visitors and participants). When the spending by local visitors and organisers is included, the total value of the Fleadh to the local economy rises to €35M.

The Fleadh will take place over ten days from the 13th-22nd August 2011, where the program will have international entertainment and cultural performances throughout the week.
