Well done to all involved in the Carlow festival

Carlow's Summerfest - held over the weekend of July 21 and 22 - has been a resounding success as its organisers take to social media to thank those who took part. 

Local man Derek Ryan and country music icon, Nathan Carter, headlined the two-day event at Oak Park.

The festival had everything and there was even a couple of dancing Gardaí.

Organisers took to Facebook to express their thanks and of course, they have their sights already set on 2019. 

They said: "Thank you so much for coming along and helping us to make the first ever Summerfest Carlow a huge success. We were so lucky with the weather which helped make the experience even better.

"We would like to thank all of you who travelled from far-away places, like Australia, Thailand, France, New York, England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and from all counties around Ireland.
