1916 Athenry Event

It is hoped to engage drama, poetry, music, language, sport, theatre, dance, heritage, cultural and community organisations in County Galway and surrounding counties to help us with this event. It is envisaged a number of plays and small reenactment as well as other forms of entertainment will be on display at the event. Ireland Reaching Out will also be there during the two days in June and look forward to seeing you. 

In order to  provide a great visiting experiencing for all, the organising committee are asking you or your group for some support and help. In order to allow groups to come and help develop ideas a meeting will be held in the Raheen Woods Hotel, Athenry at 8pm on Thursday 10th March 2016. If you are interested in attending please contact Michael Somers michael.somers@teagasc.ie
