Preparations for the hosting of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann 2016 in Ennis stepped up this week with statutory bodies hosting an information briefing for business people in the town.
The briefing was held in advance of Comhaltas Abbey Branch submitting a formal event licence application under the statutory planning process. The application process will afford an opportunity to the wider public to comment on proposals for what will be the largest event ever staged in the town.
Local gardaí have provided a contact email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) up to November 30, where businesses can bring to the attention of the agencies any proposals or issues that might be of relevance for Fleadh 2016.
“This is a major event for Ennis and it requires significant advanced planning by all involved. We have opened up a channel of communication with the business community and we would ask that they would engage with the agencies at this point,” commented Superintendent Brendan McDonagh.
Adrian Kelly, chief fire officer, Clare County Council noted, “The fire service wishes to ensure that the required standards of fire safety and crowd management are met at the various venues and we are happy to engage with property owners at this stage to ensure that any necessary preparations can be put in place.”
