Country Music Festival 2017

The 2017 Country Music Festival in Monaghan Town was another huge success story with number above other years from all appearances. Great credit to the organising committee for the excellent manner in which they plan and implement the festival and make it so accessible to all. The rain did not deter the fans from coming out to support their favourite performers and the closing day, Sunday, drew tremendous crowds to the Diamond. The Jiving Competition sponsored by Seamus McKenna Motors was another great attraction and had a full Diamond early in the afternoon. Mike Denver had the crowd in the palm of his hand from the first number to the last and everyone seemed to be having a very enjoyable time. Despite the huge crowd there was no unruliness or misbehaviour noticeable as all were intent on having a good time. Mike Denver, Jimmy Buckley, Derek Ryan, Michael English, Jim Devine plus other performers provided polished shows and top class entertainment. Well done to all. Our photos are all from Sunday afternoon and night.
