Festival Fever

Body and Soul 2014The fifth annual Body & Soul Festival took place at Ballinlough Castle last weekend. Approximately 8,000 revellers passed through the village enroute to the three day long party under glorious blue skies and clear starry nights.

Surrounding fields were commandeered as temporary car parks to accommodate the masses and land surrounding the castle was dotted with hundreds of tents. By day, locals and visitors alike partied in the woodlands in specially created settings and surrounded by specially commissioned art installations. By night, they danced away to acts including Gary Numan and Goldfrapp.

Local causes in Clonmellon and Delvin benefited from a generous donation of 100 Sunday passes to the festival while local businesses reported a bumper weekend and were full of praise for those attending the festival.

Roll on 2015!
