Following another very successful Festival the Committee would like to thank everyone who helped out in any way in the run up the Festival and during the festival. All the volunteers who gave so free of their time were thanked as was all the Sponsors and Arklow Municipal District Council, Wicklow County Council, for their help and support. Next year’s festival dates are 15th – 17th July, 2016.
