Oh what a night! there was an excellent turnout at last nights festival launch which was held upstairs at La Banca restaurant. There was a good diverse mix of people from business, sporting, religious, recreational groups and residents. The evening was opened by Tom Dowling followed by a power point presentation by committee member Sandy McKenna (did wonderful, take a bow). Entertainment on the night was provided by Dancity Ireland and the nights proceedings were closed by Chairman Joe Byrne.
It was good to speak to many after the formalities were over and see how much genuine the support is for our festival. Delighted that Glenda Gilson made a brief appearance a nice treat for the younger member of Dancity to get a photo with here and also some not so young committee members!!! thanks Glenda for dropping in. We should have some photos of the event up on the blog and facebook over the weekend.taff
Thank to the staff at La Banca restaurant for providing the venue, food and drinks for the evening, it was a wonderful setting.
So it full steam ahead from here as we count down the days to September 20th !!
