Conamara Sea Week is a multi-disciplinary festival, celebrating the wonderful marine heritage of Conamara. Highlights include music workshops, art exhibitions, cookery demonstrations, concerts, talks, walks, children’s activities, sports events, lots of great music and buckets of fun for all the family.
A special highlight of the festival for the last few years has been the wonderful ‘After the Light’ parade, a spectacular night full of myth, magic, madness and mayhem!
Conamara Environmental Education & Cultural Centre was founded in 1984 by local school teachers Leo Hallissey, Clare O’Toole and Aingeal Ni Chonghaile to raise environmental awareness and provide heritage education at a local and national level. The centre is located in the village of Letterfrack, North West Conamara, Co. Galway, Ireland.
Over the years the CEECC have won various awards for their work…
Taisce50, Better Ireland Award, Local Heroes Award, ESB Conservation Award, Iarnrod Eireann Award, Galway County Council Premier Arts Award, Galway County Council Heritage Award (Premier Award).
