Festival events in Burtonport for the next few days

Due to the ongoing restrictions on major gatherings Burtonport Festival will host a small number of outdoor events, together with online events for a number of days starting today, Saturday, July 17 running on until Wednesday, July 21.

In fact the sea angling competition from Burtonport pier kicked off a short time ago, at 12 noon.

Sunday will have a car treasure hunt in the afternoon from the Community Centre. Monday will have a sandcastle building competition, for which photos can be submitted online.

Tuesday will have a scavenger hunt while on Wednesday at Keadue Football field, there will be a drive-in table quiz.

Other events such as virtual busking, kids walks, photography competitions and It's a Knockout will be streamed via Facebook and Instagram.

This is a fantastic initiative from Triona, Paddy Bonner and all helpers in putting this together and compliments go their way.
