Here is a message from CEO & Artistic Director, Paul Brown, on behalf of the festival board and staff.
“It has been a joyous journey as we reached out to more of Donegal than ever before. From the islands of the Gaeltacht to the lowlands of East Donegal and the hills of Inishowen, Donegal has shone brightly with great artwork once again.
A very special thanks goes out to all the artists. Each and every one of you were the stars of the show and to the EAF team who worked to make this year’s festival a wonderful reality, to Edel Corcoran, Seán Feeny, Seamus Coyle, Sharon McMenamin, Marion Paugam, Kevin Murray, Kathleen Bonner, Clodagh Hughes Mc Ivor and all our volunteers….take a bow.
A huge thanks to all our curators and partners, venues, crew and technicians, to our chair Meabh Uí Chonnachain, and company secretary Eunan Kelly and to all our Board of Directors who have given their time so freely in their care of the organisation.
And last but not least to all the audiences, participants and citizen artists without whom Earagail Arts Festival would simply not exist, we look forward to seeing you again in 2024.”
