One of the highlights of the day and indeed the whole week is Boithrin na Smaointe, a commemorative concert taking place in St Paul's Church (5.30pm) to celebrate the last 70 years of Comhaltas, and in particular the three Westmeath families who were instrumental in the early years of Comhaltas and the Fleadh.

Another stand out event today is the concert in the Cathedral of Christ the King (7pm) featuring acclaimed vocalists Sean Keane and Mullingar native Emmet Cahill.

In the Arts Centre at 10.30pm one of the giants of the céili band scene, the Blackwater Céili Band, are playing at 10.30pm.

Other events taking place today include a concert by the Wynne/Carlos family in the Band Hall at 1pm, a Seisiún Mór na hÉigse in the Cathedral of Christ the King (2.45pm to 3.45pm).
