Newfoundland, a large Canadian island
A total of 57 Newfoundlanders will come to Carlow over the coming days and stay with locals for the Ireland Newfoundland Festival of 2018.
There’s a range of events planned for the duration of their stay – including concerts, tours of the area and a civic reception in Carlow with the Canadian Ambassador attending the ceremony.
The 13th annual festival will kick off with a gala traditional music concert, with acclaimed musicians from Ireland’s South-East, in the Community Hall in Myshall, following the official opening of the festival.
The gig will kick-off at 8pm on Friday, August 17.
Visitors will also attend Duckett's Grove and many other well-known sites in Carlow during their three-day stop over in the Dolmen county.
