 What the papers say

 

A briliant festival, throughly recommended

The Support for the festival is visible throughout the town and overall the atmosphere was as friendly as you would image Ireland to be. All the visitors and locals were having a great time watching and dancing to the bands. The acoustic gigs in the Market House was a great success, with shows being sold out on both Saturday and Sunday and the head-liners in the late night Marque were very well supported. It's a briliant festival, throughly recommended and definitely on my list of annual events I visit every year.
