Opening day excitement and the festival kicks off with local pubs and hotels open for tune and song sessions from 3pm. We then open the event formally at the opening night concert which features the fantastic Scottish singer Emily Smith & Jamie McClennan, ATLAS from Limerick and the Festival Association Band.
Please ensure that you book early for the ticketed concert events. We have some fantastic entertainment this year and a couple of really nice suprises at the venues; please don't miss it!
