As the Féile na Laoch festival is organised and run by a group of volunteers, we rely on the dedication and help of many others to make it a success and we invite you to take part in celebrating the life and work of Seán Ó Riada and Ireland’s other heroes.

As well as looking for individuals to lend a hand, we are also currently looking for the following resources:

  • Flag making material, for example light cloth.
  • Lengths of waven plastic piping, 6′ long and 3/4” or 1” diameter.
  • Goods for making tea/snacks/confectionery.
  • Ropes, and other material that can be used for cordoning off areas.
  • Candles and night-lights of all kinds.
  • Spare umbrellas.
  • Lengths of 2” x 1” timber.
  • Trellis material.
  • Accommodation in the West Muskerry and Glenflesk areas.

If you can help with any of these, or would like to help us in any other way, please send an email to
