Tydavnet May Festival 2018

On Sunday May 6th 2018 Tydavnet held its first Country Festival with Open-air Music, song and dance and plenty more besides and the party went on till after midnight. The Main Street was closed off and the crowds poured in with young and not-so-young enjoying the entertainment. DJ Darren kept the air alive and the main act - All Folk'd up' certainly proved their popularity with the response they received from the audience. At the first attempt the festival was a huge success and no doubt there will be demands for a re-run next year. Well done to the organising committee and all the hands that helped in one way or another to make it a success. On Monday night May 14th the committee gathered in Tydavnet Community Centre to present funds to three organisation. Chairperson, Brendan McCrudden, summarised the event and stated that the Festival was run by the Community to the Community and that the Community was going to benefit from the event.

He thanked the Committee and all the volunteers who turned out on the day and helped with the Clean-up afterwards led by Pascal McCarra.
