The program for the 14th Carrick Water Music Festival was officially launched last week in St. George’s Terrace Restaurant with supporters and sponsors joining the committee for wonderful music by Carole Coleman, Edel Beirne and Rhona Trench.


Cathaoirleach of Leitrim County Council Finola Armstrong-Maguire officially launched the Festival’s programme, taking place this July 11-15 and spoke of the importance of the Arts in Leitrim, the great spirit of volunteering in the region and urged people to support the Festival’s events.
Announced are five days full of diverse music, art, literature and film offering entertainment for all ages from lunchtime until late into the night.


Headlining this year are the Hothouse Flowers, on Friday July 13 in Landmark Central – this is sure to sell out so early booking is advisable!
