Ballinamore Festival

Hoping everyone will have a great time at the Festival and Agricultural Show.  And a big thank you to all committee members and the hard working stewards and everyone who has helped in any way, without the goodwill of the helpers there would be no festival.

And a great welcome to returning family, as I think this is one of the most important aspect of the festival, finding old friends and having a bit of craic.  It’s lovely to see so many tourists; it surely is A Friendly Town!
