Partry FolkFest 2017 in aid of Mayo Roscommon Hospice and Mayo Cancer Support

The inaugural Partry FolkFest will take place on Saturday, May 13th in The Village Inn, Partry. All proceeds from the one-day event will go to Mayo-Roscommon Hospice and Mayo Cancer Services-Rock Rose House. The event will seek to raise much-needed funds for these two worthy causes, as well as awareness as to the amazing work that they do to support cancer sufferers and their families.

The event will be a family-friendly day of music and fun with 14 acts from around the county and beyond. The event is being organised by Charlotte and Brendan Duignan who lost their father (and father-in-law), Cyril Duignan to renal cancer last September. The family wanted to do something to say thank you for the wonderful help and support that they received from the two organisations. A Facebook page has been set up to highlight the FolkFest.
