35th CLONMANY FESTIVAL 2002


Cead Mile Failte

As we approach our 35th Anniversary we would like to avail of this opportunity to sincerely thank all past and present committee members, helpers and especially our sponsors whose generosity makes this annual event possible.

Clonmany Festival is somewhat unique in that it has always catered for the entire family, with something on offer for all age groups, and a wide variety of taste. Clonmany Festival is one of the oldest and most popular Festivals in Donegal. We hope that everyone, who comes to Clonmany for Festival Week, enjoys the craic and have a pleasant and safe stay.
