After 34 years and over 100 festivals and Inishbofin Summer Schools, it's time for Clare and I to leave the pitch. We would like to thank everyone for the great support we have had over the years. A big thank you to all the artists, poets, musicians and scientists who have given so generously with their time and creativity. A special thanks to all the community organisations and businesses in our area and the many individuals who kept the festival afloat for the last 34 years.
The Summer School on Inishbofin will be run by Nóirín Burke from the National Aquarium in Galway and hopefully an enthusiastic local group will take over the running of the Bog and Sea Week festivals.
Thank you to this years Sea Week sponsors.
Sea Week finished officially on the 29th October but thanks to the Connemara National Park, our art exhibition runs until 24th Nov. This is a great chance to buy a special present for Christmas as original works of art are sold at €90 unframed and €130 framed. Obviously these works of art are sold at a faction of the price due to the generosity of artists who want to see their works finding welcoming homes, especially in Connemara.
Pictured here are just a few of the artworks
