THE FOLLY FESTIVAL 2019 – THANK YOU: Cullohill Community Council would like to express their sincerest gratitude to everyone who played a part in making the festival the huge success that it was. To the army of volunteers who worked so hard to help set up and once again returned to help us take it all down. To the many volunteers who helped us over the festival to steward, assist with Nancy’s Yard play area, the great folly bake, adventure race, the ‘Feast of Irish Beef’, run the bar etc…. we couldn’t have done it without your help.
Special mention to those who organised events for us, all of which added greatly to the festival… Annmarie Deegan – Art Exhibition; Cullohill Walking Group – Mountain Walk; Aine Mahony – Adventure Race; Bernard Kilbride – Vintage Car Display and Mary Killeen – Dog Show. Huge thanks to all our sponsors and supporters without whom our festival could not happen most notably Laois Partnership, Laois County Council and Festival Republic. To the many local businesses and trades-people who assisted in so many ways – labour, expertise, equipment.
And last and most certainly not least… to all the people who came to The Folly. It was our pleasure to welcome you to Cullohill Castle, we sincerely hope that you enjoyed your time at The Folly and look forward to welcoming you back in 2020. Early bird tickets for the event will be on sale on ticketweb over the next number of weeks.
