Sligo Fleadh – Dexterity Skills of Musicians

Sligo Fleadh Cheoil 2015 – Dexterity Skills of Musicians

While talented musicians from around the country descend on Sligo for a week long festival of music, Collins McNicholas Recruitment & HR Services Group ask, if we were to run an Assessment Centre for these roles, aside from a musical ear and an amazing natural musical ability, what types of dexterity might be required of these musicians?

(Obviously this is just for fun  – we won’t be going into competition with the XFactor or Louis Walsh any time soon!)
