A big thanks to Donegal County Council and the support of Councilors Niamh Kennedy and Noel Jordan. Also, thanks to Mac’s Bar (Damien McIntyre) for donating a location for our electric connection. If you wish to donate to this year’s Christmas Lights collection, boxes can be found in Floyd’s Mace, the butcher’s and the pubs from Thursday.

As well as showcasing local young talent, there was an exhibition of various types of fiddles commonly played over the years from box fiddles to Dancing Masters Fiddles. There were classes and a concert, all supported by Aoife Feeney, Peter Campbell, Aidan O’Donnell, Martin McGinley and Megan Níc Fionnghaile.
