Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has welcomed the news that Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann events will be staged at venues in the Bogside including The Gasyard and Pilots Row.
Councillor Logue said: “I welcome the news that Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann events are being held right the heart of local communities.
“The likes of the Gasyard Féile have an excellent track record over the years of hosting large outdoor music events.
“With having the events in the Bogside it will hopefully bring more people into the area and give a boost to the local tourism industry, bars and shops. For many of those coming to Fleadh it will be their first time in Derry and they will be hearing the story of our city.”
