Lá Oidhreachta Chathair na Mart 2010

‘Lá Oidhreachta Chathair na Mart’ takes place on Sunday August 8th  from 2-5pm coinciding with the Westport Music Festival, bringing the weeks celebration to an entertaining and lively end.

The Heather Breeze Céilí Band will provide the music and entertainment this year. The street will be turned into a large céilí floor, so dust down and polish off your “Aon dó trí” in time for the Céilí Mór. Why not bring your ‘feadóg stáin’ or your’ bosca ceoil’ along and take part in a traditional busking competition on the streets of Westport.

Traditional crafts will be demonstrated all day giving you a chance to catch a glimpse of our traditional styles of spinning, felting, basket making and knitting.

Visitors will also get a chance to taste the specialities that were common fadó such as homemade jams, chutneys, breads and treats.

Clew Bay Heritage Centre will offer guided historical walking tours throughout the day, taking you through the arches of time in Westport.

Lá Oidhreachta guarantees to be a trip down memory lane with plenty to do and see.   Come along and don’t forget those dancing shoes!
