Introducing the programme of events for this year’s festival which includes a host of new, innovative events, he assured the community that there would be something for everyone. He was particularly pleased to announce the arrival of the famous Tulla Ceili Band, who  will be performing at a special Ceili organised by Ceol Camlocha in the Canal Court Hotel on Friday 16th March. Mayor Casey commented, “I am delighted with the programme of events which has been put together for the St. Patrick’s Days Festivities. There is something for everyone to enjoy with a full programme of music, song and dance.
