31st CLONMANY FESTIVAL 1998


Cead Mile Failte

As we approach our 31st Anniversary we would like to avail of this opportunity to sincerely thank all past and present committee members, helpers and especially our sponsors whose generosity make this annual event possible. Clonmany Festival is somewhat unique in that it has always catered for the entire family, with something on offer for all age groups and a wide variety of tastes.

Clonmany Festival is one of the oldest and most popular Festivals in Donegal. We hope that everyone who comes to Clonmany for Festival Week, enjoys the craic and has a pleasant and safe stay.

The Committee would appreciate a subscription of 2.00 from adults, for all open air concerts, ~ children free. This is due to the high standard of bands performing this year, and also because of the financial commitment to the Market House Development. However all subscriptions are greatly accepted.
