Ireland Newfoundland Committee

Group Of The Irish Contingent In New Foundland, 2009

The Ireland Newfoundland festival is a community festival that rotates between Ireland and Newfoundland & Labrador, Canada. This festival focuses on the links between the coastal communities on both sides of the Atlantic. Ireland is set to host the festival in September 2010.

Up until now the Irish  festival was hosted by the Counties Waterford, Wexford and Kilkenny. This year the festival has been opened up  to the Island of Ireland. Due to this change local committees are needed to organise events and attractions in their area for the festival. A meeting was held recently in Merry's Pub to organise a local committee, which was attended by our President Níoclas ó Griofáin.

Níoclas  travelled to Newfoundland in 2009 with a local group, and Waterford County Museum hopes to hold an event to coincide with the visit of the group to Dungarvan in September.
