This year’s Helium Fundraiser Festival will once again take place in Ballymahon over the second week of June.
The thriving boutique festival which is run entirely by volunteers in a unique 200-year-old walled garden has been confirmed for Saturday June 8.
With three stages, free camping, and free parking, and the promise of a quality line-up, this festival has been growing in popularity.
The festival is also a fundraiser, for Ataxia Ireland.
The charity - formerly Friedereich's Ataxia Society of Ireland - supports people living with progressive disorders of the nervous system. It has been instrumental in the improvement of the quality of life for one friend of Helium in particular - Ballymahon man Thomas Colohan, who brought the cause and great work of Ataxia Ireland to light.
The Helium Fundraiser Festival has consistently raised enough money to make significant contributions to Ataxia Ireland year on year - with almost €50,000 donated to date. And it’s hoped that this year will be no different - with the Helium Festival once again confirmed to go ahead on Saturday, June 8.
Details of this year’s line-up will be announced soon.
