Irish festival returns to Mountain View


Downtown Mountain View will transform into the Emerald Isle on Saturday, May 7, and Sunday, May 8, when it hosts the annual Silicon Valley Irish Fleadh (fleadh, pronounced "fla," is Gaelic for "festival"). The event boasts Irish music and dance performances (punk band The Shams headline), arts and crafts, food (including corned beef and shepherd's pie), fun for kids, and plenty of Harp, Smithwick's, and Guinness beers (plus other beverages). Admission is free and the action takes place from noon to 8 p.m. both days, along Hope Street between Dana and Villa. Go to SV Irish Fleadh.
