SAVE THE DATE! Mayo Day 2020 will celebrate Creative Mayo

Mayo Day 2020 December PR

Mayo Day, a celebration of our county’s vibrant culture and community spirit, returns for its 6th consecutive year on May 2nd 2020.  Over the last number of years, the Mayo Day campaign has been an enormous success, garnering worldwide attention with events taking place locally, nationally and internationally that pay tribute to the ingenuity, pride and accomplishments of Mayo people the world over.

In 2019 the theme of the campaign was ‘The Mayo Word’ which focused on extolling the literary accomplishments of renowned novelists, poets and songwriters from this bastion of arts in the West of Ireland.  Building on the incredible interest and participation in last year’s festivities, it has been decided that this year’s expansive theme will be ‘Creative Mayo.’
