Welcome to Sligo International Choral Festival 2014

Cead Míle Fáilte! A Hundred Thousand Welcomes - to the 26th SLIGO INTERNATIONAL CHORAL FESTIVAL from November 14th-16th 2014.

We are deeply indebted to Failte Ireland, Sligo Borough Council and Sligo County Council for their financial assistance, not forgetting our ever-loyal and generous sponsors, patrons and advertisers. We also greatly acknowledge our media partners, The Sligo Champion.


We are very excited about our return to The Gilhooly Hall, reputed to have the best acoustics in Sligo – regretfully, this year, due to lack of space, we will not be able to provide changing/warmup rooms in The Gilhooly Hall or Sligo Cathedral – (see rule 15 under “General”) - so ALL choirs should rehearse and change in their hotel/s before arriving at the venue.

We have withdrawn some competitions, as you will see, but we will retain two of the new competitions from last year –
BEST OVERALL CHOIR OF THE FESTIVAL and The W.B. Yeats Perpetual Trophy.

The Festival Club will take place in The Sligo Park Hotel on the Saturday night, where, some say, the “real singing” is done!! No doubt, many choirs will entertain shoppers on the Saturday and will enhance the various religious services on the Sunday morning. Please
indicate your participation in one or both of these, on the entry form.

We look forward to welcoming participating choirs from all parts of the world and from the four corners of Ireland.
