Following on from the success of the 2009 Michaelmas Festival preparations are well
underway for another fun filled weekend this year. The festival takes place on Saturday
25th and Sunday 26th September and promises to live up to it’s well deserved reputation
as a fun day out for all the family from the very youngest to the very oldest.
In 2008 the festival committee pledged to raise funds to purchase a defibrillator
and train up a team to operate it, this would be used for the benefit of the whole
Graiguenamanagh community. The equipment is in place now and 15 people are fully
trained so congratulations are due to everyone who helped in any capacity make this
dream a reality.
If you are interested in booking a spot to demonstrate a traditional craft at this
year’s festival or sell your hand made items please be aware that you need to contact
Jim Butler on 087-1320234 asap. Preference will be given to locally produced work
and we are looking for an interesting variety of handcrafts and products. For any
other enquiries please ring our chairman Jim Butler on 087-1320234.
