We couldn't get by each year without the ongoing support of local businesses and our local community including members of the local public who volunteer, schools and community organisation.
Local Irish companies have partnered with us to support and sponsor the festival. Local businesses also provide the festival with support by signing up to our Friends Circle which helps to support the ongoing development and sustainability of this community based festival.
