Féile Brian Ború

May 25th, 2020 | Posted by arlenewhite in News - (0 Comments)

Due to the current restrictions as a result of COVID-19, this year’s Féile Brian Ború will unfortunately not go ahead as planned from 8th – 12th July 2020.
It is really disappointing to be taking a break from our annual festival for the first time since 1993, but obviously everyone’s safety is far more important.

Stay Safe!

The 2019 event programme is almost complete with just a few more fun events to be confirmed.

Details of the events are now available on and you can also buy tickets for all the workshops here. There will be workshops in Drama, Gardening, Beginners Art and Natural Skincare.
Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date. If you have any queries drop us a line –
See you from 17th – 21st July!
