The Clancy Brothers Music & Arts Festival committee is issuing a call to the people of the town to do their bit to make next yearâ€™s festival a huge success.
The Committeeâ€™s annual general meeting takes place in the Nano Nagle Community Resource Centre in Carrick-on-Suir next Monday, October 22 at 7pm and it is inviting anyone interested in getting involved in next Juneâ€™s weekend of celebrations to attend.
Clancy Festival Committee spokesperson Claire Oâ€™Regan said volunteering for the festival is a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all who participate.
â€œThe Clancy Festival is a great opportunity for the community of Carrick-on-Suir and the surrounding areas to pull together and create a wonderful weekend for everyone to enjoy,â€ she said.
â€œThis event is putting Carrick on the map and the fact that the wonderful Clancy Brothers were from the town is something to be proud of and celebrated.â€
She recalled that this yearâ€™s festival that took place over the June Bank Holiday Weekend was a great success with sell out concerts at Brewery Lane and The Strand Theatre, a hugely popular arts trail, pub and street sessions, walking tours, fun history lessons at the Castle, and captivating theatre.
