What a day that was.
The TV cameras were in Slane Saturday afternoon to film the festival activities. The local arts & crafts and food producers set out their stalls and there was music and dancing provided by members of The Chapel Street Band, Rossin Lady Dancers and Donore Dancers. There was also singing from the Slane Childrens’ Community Choir and a Punch & Judy show for the children. The crowds turned out, the weather was good, the craic was even better! Watch out for the recorded programme ‘Out and About in Ireland’ coming soon on IrishTV (Showcase Channel Sky191).

Saturday night’s highlight concert at the Conyngham Arms Hotel provided excellent entertainment for all who attended.
Headliners Colum & Ben Sands of The Sands Family folk group delved into their vast repertoire and delivered an excellent and entertaining set of folk songs, interspersed with storytelling in their own inimitable style.
Ably supported by Carolan, a local act who mixed the old with the new, the show provided yet another great evening of quality entertainment.

Its getting very near the end!

One more show to go, Sunday night’s closing concert features virtuoso accordian player Martin Donohoe, lilter Seamus Fay and storyteller Eamon Maguire performing in the Conyngham Arms Hotel at 7.30 p.m..
