Dromineer Literary Festival rebrands to include Nenagh

The committee of the very successful Dromineer Literary Festival has announced that it has rebranded to become the Dromineer – Nenagh Literary Festival.

The festival programme has grown again this year and an exciting programme of events will now run from Tuesday, October 1st, to Sunday, October 6th 2019 in popular venues in both Nenagh and Dromineer.

Among the big names already confirmed are writer Joseph O’Connor, who is currently promoting his latest novel, “Shadowplay”, and outstanding local writer Donal Ryan.

First run in 2004, the festival has become one of the most popular literary festivals in the country, and retains its core attractions of poetry and fiction workshops for all ages, as well as readings, and the ever-popular trip on the “Kueetu” on Sunday morning.

Chairperson Geraldine McNulty says she is delighted with the support which the festival has been receiving from businesses in the town of Nenagh, which has contributed significantly to the growth of the event and has led to the rebranding of the event.

“The enthusiasm of the Nenagh business community for the festival means that we have been able to expand it, and we are delighted to be able to showcase the town by using really great venues such as the Heritage Centre, the Castle and the Nenagh Library, as well as the Arts Centre. Thanks to the generosity of the Dromineer Yacht Club, the original home of the festival, we have a range of great venues for our popular and interesting set of events”, she said.

Ms McNulty thanked Tipperary County Council for the support provided through its Arts Office for the Festival, and Nenagh Arts Centre staff, who continue to manage all the bookings for the festival.
