Preview launch for Allingham Festival in Ballyshannon

Allingham Festival Ballyshannon

The pre-Festival Launch Night for the 2018 Allingham Festival will take place tonight  Friday, 19 October in Melly's Pub, East Port, Ballyshannon at 8.30pm.


The Launch will feature a performance of “The Perfect Find” by Winifred McNulty, a one-act play based on “the Dig” – the excavations that were triggered by the construction of the Ballyshannon-Bundoran by-pass. “The Perfect Find” was shortlisted by RTE for the PJ O'Connor Award.


The launch will also include music, a raffle, and a preview of the 2018 Allingham Festival which will run from November 7-11 this year.
This year's festival will include a tribute to the late Donegal poet Francis Harvey, a performance of Harvey's play “Farewell to Every White Cascade” about the impact of the Ballyshannon dam, and a screening of the new Irish film Black '47, including a Q&A session with the producers.
