Great start to the 2014 Festival last night at a full house in Boyles Pub for the Festival Song for Slane competition. Four acts performed to an exceptionally high standard –
Coscain (The Flame of Slane)
The Wednesday Gang (Fishing on the Boyne)
Colm Scannell (True Wilderness)
Alan Louth (The Angels of Slane)
After much deliberation, the judges awarded first prize to Alan Louth for The Angels of Slane, which will now be professionally recorded for release on iTunes.
Special thanks to Andrew & Ditte of Boyles Pub for sponsoring the competition which was a great success and will hopefully now become an annual event. http://boylesofslane.com/
