The Feis Committee cannot be held responsible for any errors or omissions on the application form. It is the responsibility of the schools or individuals to correctly enter all information. (Eileen Coyle Cup & Bursary –  please enter 1 in the points column for each competition entered but not placed.)

  7. OWN CHOICE MUSIC – THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT
    It is compulsory to submit own choice pieces at least 2 weeks before Feis begins - Please be aware that all woodwind & brass competitions are own choice this year. This means that the Accompanist has a greater work load and needs own choice music to be submitted asap before Feis begins. Failure to submit music may have an adverse effect on the Competitor. All music queries to Pat MacCafferty Music Secretary 02871352333

  8. A new Shield & Bursary 0f £100 has been donated by Brian Foster, Playwright in memory of his mother Susan Foster. This will be in the Speech & Drama section of the feis - Competition no: 246 – Senior Character Study. I look forward to finding out who will be the first time winner of this Shield & bursary.
