Event Description

The Donegal Bealtaine festival was launched in The Regional Cultural Centre Letterkenny by Donegal  Cathaoirleach Cllr Ciaran Brogan. This was followed by a very informative presentation on the Older Active EU Citizen by Grainne Hines of Active Retirement Ireland. Grainne spoke about how much the EU encourages active citizenship in all ages and also emphasised how much financial support the EU gives to groups like Active Retirement Ireland. Other speakers included Eileen Burgess Donegal County Librarian and Cultural Services Divisional manager and Cllr Gerry McMonagle, Letterkenny Town Mayor.

Entertainment included singing, dancing and storytelling by Virgin Quinn, Fergus Cleary and Aussie Bryson. The audience of around 30 joined in the singing & dancing!
