Féile na Finne : 30ú Bealtaine – 2ú Meitheamh
Beidh Féile na Finne ar siúl deireadh seachtaine na Cincíse agus is í seo an ceathrú Féile bliantiúil don choiste seo. Dhéanfaigh an Sagart Pádraig Ó Baoighill an óscailt óigiúil Oíche Aoine 30ú Bealtaine í dtabairne an Railway Inn, agus beidh ceol le Shaun Mc Monagle na dhiaidh, Beidh taispeántas Tinte Ealaine ar bhruach Loch Finne ag 11.30i.n.
Tá clár imeachtaí do shean agus óg a eagrú agus anois is aimsir mhaith an rud is tábhachtaí dúinn leis an ócáid a chur i gcríth. Is fíor a rá gur ceantar álainn í an Ghealtacht Láir go hiomlán. Idir cnoic agus gleannta, locha agus aoibhneacha, níl a shárú le fáil.
Tá an coiste fíor bhuíoch do achán nduine a bheir tacaíocht dóibh agus tá siad ag dréim go dtiocfaidh beag agus mór amach agus sult a bhaint as an deireadh seachtaine.
