Thousands of competitors from Derry and further afield will converge on the city during the Easter break to take part in the annual Féis Dhoire Cholmcille.

Since 1922, Féis Dhoíre Cholmcílle has welcomed thousands of young people and adults through its doors and, in turn, sent many of these out into the world with added confidence and expertise.

Past competitors include Josef Locke, Dana, Charlie Sherrard/Patrick O’Hagan, Bronagh Gallagher, Fergal Sharkey, and Nadine Coyle.
