The Mary from Dungloe Festival starts next weekend 25th July and runs to 3rd August

Music from Classic Beatles to traditional, the best of American and Irish Female Country singers, top Irish Country Music Artists, the Miami Showband, The Fureys with Davey Arthur and our headliner for the ’09 Festival, The Saw Doctors. Once again we pride ourselves on our “La Gaelach” (Fri 31st July) with the Main Street taken over for a mini Fleadh where Irish dancing, Ceilí dancing and traditional music and culture continues from 11am – midnight.

We welcome all our Mary’s to the 2009 Festival and hope each Mary will take home fond memories and new friends from Dungloe. May I extend a very special welcome to Una Rooney (Armagh) our 2008 Mary from Dungloe who will be our ambassador during the 10 day festival.”
