Goleen Summer Festival

The Goleen Festival was a great success this year with a number of new events. It all kicked off with a show by Catherine Cunningham “Bothering the Dead” at Barleycove. We had our first Cottage Market in the Community Centre while nearly every other event in the area was cancelled due to bad weather. The Community Centre was once again the venue for the Art Competition and back again to Barleycove for the ever popular Charades. There was music in the pubs with the “pub talent” competition and on the street with local youth collective that went down a storm. there was music every night either in the pub or on the street. Bird Watching, Tug of War, Circus skills, human fuseball, busking, deadliest catch and so much more. We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did and hope to see you again next year.
