A committee has been set up to help organise a festival for Mountmellick later in the summer. The festival will take place on Saturday August 17 in O’ Connell Square in the town. Music and entertainment will be provided on the day and it is hoped to bring more business into the town.
Speaking about the festival at this month’s Mountmellick Town Council meeting, Cllr Lisa Delaney said that she hoped all the shops would support it. The councillors then wished her luck with the venture.
