‘Showcasing our great county’

The 9th annual Roscommon Lamb Festival kicked off earlier this week and continues until Bank Holiday Monday, May 2nd.

  Fun and entertainment is assured over the coming days, with a diverse range of activities lined up, celebrating agriculture, our heritage and culture.

  There will be an emphasis on the sheep industry – with a fun approach. The festival will feature art exhibitions, farm walk, farmers’ market, quilt-making demonstrations, céilí, barbecue, sheepdog trials and fun events for all the family – as well as much more!

  A major Family Fun Day will be held in Loughnaneane Park on Sunday, May 1st. With children’s amusements, pony rides, etc., it is certainly not to be missed.

  Events are being held in Roscommon town, and also in adjoining areas including Castlecoote, Knockcroghery, Lecarrow and Drum.

  Council CEO Eugene Cummins said: “I hope we use that opportunity to showcase and celebrate what we have here. It is a celebration of Roscommon, based around the theme of the sheep and the importance the industry is to this great county of Ireland. It highlights the quality of locally-produced food and craft in the county.”
