The Body and Soul Festival will kick off this Friday (20th June) at Ballinlough Castle.
With the village experiencing some fantastic weather right now and with up to 10,000 extra people expected to pass through it over the weekend, please remember to expect the unexpected!
The organisers of Body and Soul are working hard to make sure the festival goes without a hitch and that any inconvenience to local people is kept to an absolute minimum.
Body and Soul have produced a Resident’s Information sheet and this can be downloaded here.
Further information for residents in conjunction with Delvin Garda and Community Alert is provided below.
Noise levels will be monitored throughout the festival in accordance with event regulations but it is inevitable that there will be some audible disturbance, especially around the festival site.
We would strongly recommend that neighbours keep a look out for elderly or vulnerable neighbours this weekend as they may be confused or upset at the disruption and may not be aware of the increased security vulnerabilities.
Body & Soul is a well run festival and attracts a good and respectful crowd, however, with 10,000 extra people potentially passing through, it is essential that we all prepared to respond to any issues that may arise.
