Sun to shine on Cowboys and Heroes this weekend

The sun is expected to shine and temperatures go through the roof as Drumcoura and Ballinamore prepare for the decendance of Country Music fans to Cowboys and heroes this weekend.


Cowboys and Heroes 2018 will have the best in Irish Country with Derek Ryan, Mike Denver, Patrick Feeney, Jimmy Buckley, Johnny Brady, Lisa McHugh, Robert Mizzell, Cliona Hagan, Ciarán Rosney, Marty Mone, Owen Mac, Paul Kelly Music, Billy Mack, Ailish McBride, Aoife McDonagh and many more.
The festival will also have returning favourites American Car Show, Western Horse Show, Country Star Competition, Jive Competition, Gun Slingers and a new charity day where all proceeds go to Make a Wish Ireland.


By all accounts the entire Ballinamore area is booked out with festival goers and even more will be camping out at the venue.
The festival fever has trickled into Ballinamore and the town will be hoping to benefit from the American Country event. Buses will be running from the town to Drumcoura all weekend and locals are just as excited for the jam packed weekend as the visitors are.


Weekend tickets are nearly sold out but the remaining few are on www.cowboysandheroes.ie or tickets.ie.
If you miss them, day tickets are available on the gate for just €30.


All the family will be able to attend the much talked about festival on Bank Holiday Monday.
Children will love the amusements, tractor run and kids line dancing and wishes workshop and arts. Kids go free on the day and adults can pay what they want to Make a Wish Foundation.
