Among the festival highlights, there will be plenty of open traditional music sessions, an expo of Irish traditional music instruments, a céilí in the parish hall, a barge trip on the Grand Canal, bilingual cultural workshops - céilí dancing; singing for children and a drumming workshop!

The Irish language events will include arts & crafts for kids, an Irish language breakfast, a treasure hunt, story-telling for young children, a family show called Sorcas na Samhna (Halloween Circus) and the inter-school music/singing competition Gradam na Sollán.
