PEOPLE in the B&B business in the Castleisland area and its immediate neighbourhood are being asked to update their contact details. This is an annual appeal to those in the business in an effort to identify and advertise accommodation for the duration of the Patrick O'Keeffe Traditional Music Festival which runs over the October Bank Holiday weekend since being established in 1993. This year's festival will be held from Friday 26th to Monday 29th.
A ' work- in- progress' website has been tentatively launched and is awaiting the kind of information which makes Castleisland and the festival a more welcoming experience for the many visitors who flock here annually and some from very far distant shores.
The festival facebook page has already dealt with enquiries from Virginia in the US and Barcelona and those contact details were posted for their convenience. The website, which is linked to the facebook page, can be found on www.patrickokeeffe.com
