Music

The county has a rich musical scene with dance, music and singing festivals.

Events such as NYAH, Virginia Pumpkin and the annual County Fleadh, have all added to our growing reputation as one of Ireland’s richest music, song and dance destinations.

Cavan is open to new and innovative arts and practice, particularly evidenced in the visual arts, youth arts and new media. As a film destination Cavan is ripe with contrasting locations and startling landscapes.

So now you've been warned; music and the arts have an infectious and powerful effect on people in Cavan...

Tá an-meas ar an nGaeilge i gContae an Chabhán. Tá pobal mhór ag labhairt agus ag usáid í go rialta ar fud an Contae uilig.
