2008 was another year in which the semi-final hurdle of the Intermediate Football Championship proved too high for Drumlane. However, new club secretary Jimmy Kelly gives plenty of reason to believe why the Sons of O’Connell shouldn’t have any fears heading into the future.

As the sun set on the final day of the 2008 Fleadh Ceoil an Cabhain all attention was drawn to the Drumlane Bar where revellers were treated to one of the most memorable sessions held there in recent times.
03 - 06 - 2008
Day 3 of Fleadh Ceoil an Cabhain 2008 was competition day for a lot of the younger musicians and dancers. Local rock outfit, Ian I Brow provided an extra musical dimension to proceedings. Brendan Smith T.D. and other local politicians were also in attendance. Small groups of musicians had also set up in every corner and alcove around the village to provide mini sessions for a very appreciative audience. See below for images of the day.
01 - 06 - 2008
For day 2 of Fleadh Ceoil an Cabhain 2008 a veritable host of talent was on display, from local musicians and dancers to those whose dedication to a tune had brought them from further afield. See photos of the night's entertainment.
