Athenry Tourism Festival - Celebration of Lady Day & The Gathering
15 August 2013 - 17 August 2013
Athenry Tourism is gathering and warmly welcoming its people and diaspora back home again to the Fields of Athenry for the traditional 'Lady Day' (Holy day on 15 August) that has been celebrated in Athenry since the dawn of time & has always been the town's own natural gathering! This year it will be re-vitalised and the day following Lady Day will hold a special 'Gathering' welcome. Further details on this will be announced closer to the time. Following on from the hugely successful Family Friendly Day in The Park next to Athenry Castle in 2012, Athenry Tourism will be holding this again in 2013, on Saturday. Events will include all day local bands & musicians, dancers & artists performing, food & crafts stalls, dog-show, duck-race, King & Queen of Athenry, bonny baby competition & lots more!"
Address: Athenry, Co Galway
