Congratulations to all who were involved in the first ever Drumcree “Bog Fest” Traditional Turf Cutting demo which took place on Sunday 7th May! Organisers have advised that the event raised just under €7,000! 70% of proceeds will go to Delvin Hospice with the remaining 30% going to the Fore Church Window Restoration Fund.
Organisers wish to thank everyone who made the event such a great success. Thank you to all the sponsors, stewards, North Westmeath Turf Cutters Committee, David Smyth Catering, Paddy Boyhan, Beatrice & Rosie from The Abbey House in Fore, all the farmers and musicians – and to John Keane who pulled it all together.
The event will be repeated in 2018.
