Shoppers and visitors to Letterkenny town were treated to some excellent music by local musicians, as the ShopLK Summer Sessions kicked off last Saturday.
Joe Gibson a local singer and instrumentalist, entertained the shopping crowds at the Letterkenny Shopping Centre, whilst local traditional music group Rag A Ra, played an excellent trad set at Market Square on the Main Street.
In the lead up to the annual Letterkenny Busking Festival, which takes place on August 24th, additional Summer Sessions are planned for the months of July and August. The next performance will be by Comhltas and will take place at Market Square on Saturday July 13th.
Whether you want to dine out, enjoy a day activity with the family or shop till you drop, Letterkenny is the place to be this Summer! Our Summer Sessions are free to enjoy so why not gather the family or a group of friends and enjoy a day out in Letterkenny!
