Festival Highlights Video

It’s taken a while to get through all the clips & photos from our festival weekend, but here’s a highlights video we’ve put together of all the events.

A special thanks to Tom Kennedy for all his work with the camera, some of the shots will be invaluable in years to come. We will put more clips together in the coming weeks.

Once again, thank you to all our sponsors for their generosity & to everyone who helped us in the build-up or during the Festival. It was great to see so many people around the village enjoying themselves.

Special mentions to our bar staff Gemma Collins, John O’Connor & particularly Joanne Riordan for her extra help, Marie & Jack J’s for her help with the license, Dave Horgan for the use of Jesse James’s, Tom Kelly for the marquee, Tomaisin’s for the tables, Eamonn Lacey on security, Ballylongford CC for their counter.

To everyone who stewarded, helped decorate the hall & village, to all involved in the various events, the kids Movie Night, particularly Michelle Sheehy, the Shannon Way Walk & Scavenger Hunt, the photo exhibition in Jesses, the Saturday Night with Dreams of Freedom & DJ Jer O’Brien, the Family Day, especially Fergie O’Connor on commentary & Roisin Walsh for the ambulance, the food trucks, Fiona Enright for organising the carnival games, to all involved or who participated in the Rambling House with Tom Herlihy as MC, & our beach walk, with special thanks to Dave Griffin & Mags Daly.

Our organising & sponsorship committees, too many to mention, put in massive unseen work to help make the weekend the success it was & a big thank you to the people of our community & the surrounding areas who made it all worthwhile by showing massive support.

One last special thanks for our treasurer, Lorraine McElligott, for her countless extra hours & late nights keeping on top of everything, along with Eoin Kennedy, organising the weekend & ensuring all the proceeds will go towards the development of our river walk & recreation area.
