Welcome to the Féile Brian Ború.

The Féile celebrates the life and legacy of Brian Ború (founder of the O’Briens) –  the most famous son of the historic twin towns of Killaloe and Ballina.

Now in it’s 21st year, the Féile Brian Ború committee are in the process of planning the 2014 millennial celebrations of Brian Ború’s final stand at Clontarf.

A packed calendar of events will shortly be unveiled – cultural, historical, musical and sporting – something for everyone to enjoy!

Killaloe and Ballina may never again regain their status as Ireland’s capital, but they will certainly prove the place to be (or to visit) in 2014 (and beyond…)

If you would like to be notified as soon as the calendar goes live, fill in the contact form on this site.
