On Friday’s everyone’s attention turns to the weekend. Don’t worry if you haven’t made any firm plans yet as Breifne is about to sort out the next three days in County Leitrim for you.
Starting this evening and running right through to Sunday’s midnight closing ceremony, the 4th Annual Stoney Woods Festival takes place in Kiltyclogher in the heart of North Leitrim. Celebrating the lifes of our loved ones and raising funds for the Kevin Bell Repatriation Fund there is something for the entire family with kid’s activities mixed together with Tug on Tar, The Big Shave (or Shear!) and plenty of excellent musical and spoken word entertainment with Charlie McGettigan & Brian Leydon.
Drumshanbo is still in the middle of An Tostal fever with the ever popular Stylish Silage competition being decided at the wrap party tomorrow evening. There’s also a showcase of food and crafts from the town this evening while the kids can get wet and wild on Lough Allen tomorrow afternoon.
Breifne visits The Dock in Carrick on Shannon to find out whats happening for all ages over the next week and Liam Farrell of the Carrick Water Festival organising committee shares everything that’s involved around the town starting from Wednesday.
There’s also a look at the Family Fun Day on Sunday at the Breffni Family Resource Centre in Carrick on Shannon and a peak at the sports action over the weekend.
