Ennis was at its busiest yet for day five of Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann Inis 2016.

It was expected for the crowds to increase on Thursday and that certainly was the case as men, women and children flocked to the streets in their droves. Competitions commence on Friday and Ennis will be packed to the rafters over the weekend.

Gary Collins of The Clare Herald launched his photo exhibition this evening as part of the Fleadh festivities. TG4’s Fleadh TV began broadcasting from Ennis, the show runs each night from 8:30pm till 11:30pm and concludes on Sunday.

Sessions and performances are taking place across the County in celebration of the Fleadh. Vincent Griffin headlined today’s Fidil Beo Series while there were concerts from the Meitheal Orchestra, Beoga and Cruinniú.

Eamon Ward visited different locations in the town for The Clare Herald while Brian Arthur was at O’Connell St.
