 "THE HISTORY OF SLIGO FEIS CEOIL 1903 - 2008" ..     
AVAILABLE IN LIBER BOOKSHOP,  SLIGO
1916 Dr. Smith an adjudicator ,was very complimentary,“the Feis has done immense good; it is helping to train up the minds of the young folk and I have no hesitation in saying that there is no
other town in Ireland of this size that can show a likeness as far as music is concerned”.
1966 As part of the Feis Ceoil contribution a literary competition was organised based on the poetry and aspirations for a Gaelic Ireland of 1916 poets and idealists. The competition was based on content of thesis only, with no marks for vocal presentation. Excellent papers were received on the poetry and mysticism of Plunkett, Pearse and McDonagh. The winner was B. Mulvanney,St. Muirdeach’s College, Ballina, runner-up Francis Gillen of Summerhill College.
