Today saw the launch of the 2014 Earagail Arts Festival in Letterkennys An Grianan Theatre. A host of sponsors, funders and representatives from various groups attended the launch earlier this morning. Fidgit Feet Aerial Company gave an outdoor performance at 11am. As always they were spectacular. Music was provided by Paul Harrigan and musicians and Hughie McClean's Show band.
The EAF theatre staff were dressed in vintage attire representing the new drama due to be performed during the festival, The Fiesta. The Fiesta is remembering The Fiesta ballroom which was based in Letterkenny in days gone by!
