The Raftery Returns Arts Festival – Sunday 26th September and Sunday 3rd October. 2021
As the title ‘Raftery Returns’ suggests, the blind bard of Cill Aodain, Kiltimagh will symbolically return to his birthplace for the first time since his death in Killeeneen, County Galway in 1835.
A group of cyclists will undertake the 100 kilometre journey and will be met and led through the town, in parade, by acclaimed actor and entertainer, Aindrias de Staic.
The exact listing of events will be finalised in summer, but we already have a very exciting and interesting programme lined up!
