Calling all songwriters….pancelticsticker
The search is on for newly composed Irish song
 €1,000 for the winning song!

The national song contest to find Ireland’s entry in the Pan Celtic International Festival 2014 has just been launched. Following the success of the event staged in Carlow in 2012 and 2013 as part of the Pan Celtic Festivals the local committee has been invited to organize the national contest again and find the winning song to represent Ireland at the International Contest which will be hosted by Derry in 2014.

The competition is open to all genres from traditional to pop, country to rock. Songs must be in Irish with lyrics and music newly composed. Entries on cd must be with Glór Cheatharlach by Friday, 31st January 2014.  With so many great songwriters and musicians in the locality it is hoped that the competition will attract many local composers. Entries will be shortlisted to be performed before a live audience and judging panel at a gala event in the Seven Oaks Hotel, Carlow on Saturday, 8th March, 2014.   The winning song will receive a prize of €1,000 and magnificent trophy and go forward to represent Ireland at the Pan Celtic International Song Contest to be held in Derry, 22-27 April where they will go head to head with the other national winners representing Wales, Scotland, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man.

A special and separate Song Contest for entrants under 17 years is being held this year and it too will take place on 8 March with a prize of €200 & trophy going to the winning song.

Rules and entry forms are available on . Full details also from Glór Cheatharlach email ei.hcalrahtaehcrolg@amme  or phone  059 9158105, 087 2857048 or 085 1340047. Entries on cd together with completed entry form to: Comórtas Amhrán Pan Cheilteach 2014, Glór Cheatharlach, College Street, Carlow by 5.00pm on 31 January.
