Corfheile 2020

Córfhéile is a non-profit making, voluntary organization that aims to provide an opportunity for children in primary school right around Dublin to perform in a non-competitive music festival. The children that perform in the Córfhéile do so for the enjoyment of singing, for the love of playing music or the desire to participate in a play or drama. Córfhéile is about developing confidence and a feeling of self-esteem for having performed in front of a large audience. The Córfhéile has been in existence in Dublin for more than 50 years and during that time, a number of famous names and faces have graced the Córfhéile stage. More than 4000 children are taking part in Corfheile this week.
