‘What will the neighbours say?’ is the theme of the inaugural Moycullen Festival, taking place in the village on September 10.
Moycullen’s local townlands are being invited to organise tables to showcase their local area and get the neighbours involved.
The event will showcase local bakers, potters, artists, as well as crafts such as knitting, crochet, and sewing, along with vegetables, garden plants, food, and other local produce. The proceeds from sales will go back into the townlands.
Along with townlands tables, the festival will feature local food stalls, children’s fancy dress, a bonny baby competition, and live music.
According to the organisers the festival aims to revive the tradition of the local festival in the area.
“This was a tradition in Moycullen many years ago, and we feel that it would be great way for neighbours to meet and keep the sense of community alive,” said Margaret Bohan of the organising committee.
The festival will be held from 1pm to 5pm at Scoil Mhuire, and admission is free.
