First and second place winners planning on traveling to Ireland for the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann: if there is no branch next to your name in the 2022 Mid-Atlantic Fleadh results list linked above, you will need to email your affiliation to Terry Rafferty @ so she can add it to the official results she sends to Comhaltas in Dublin.  This, to avoid an additional registration fee at the All-Ireland.
