Enniscorthy to host Canadian festival

ENNISCORTHY is all set to play host next year to the Ireland Newfoundland festival, which keeps the links between this country and the Canadian province alive.
The 2014 event will be staged in the South East next August and Enniscorthy has been selected as a host area for the closing days, August 28-31. The introduction of direct flights between Dublin and Newfoundland next summer is expected to boost the number of Newfoundlanders taking part this time. The province of Newfoundland and Labrador has an area five times the size of Ireland, with about one-fifth the population.
