Celtic connections on Ennis streets

AN exciting mix of street entertainment, including circus and comedy, dance and theatre, will underpin the 10th annual Ennis Street Festival on the first weekend of July.
During the three-day festival, Ennis will come alive with fun, art, culture, heritage and festivities featuring local, national and international acts and performances.
There will also be a variety of workshops for children and adults, in association with Glór. At night there will be the Ennis Sounds Good music event, with 36 gigs in 15 different venues around the town.
The theme of this year’s festival is Celtic Connections.
“The Celtic tradition has always had a direct influence on the Ennis Street Festival. Over the last 10 years, we have created connections with a variety of local community groups, national and international artists, who celebrate a Celtic tribal influence. As a result, this year we are celebrating this harmonious co-existence and the beginning of a transition to times of rejuvenated success,” a spokesperson explained.
