The Lough Ree Monster Festival returns to Lanesboro Ballyleague this weekend with entertainment for all in the Big Red Barn across three days.
The festival will commence with a special event organised by the local and county library. Coinciding with the Lough Ree Monster Festival, Lanesboro Library will host an evening of entertainment this Thursday (9th) at 7 pm. The organisers are “very excited to welcome author Jack Harte back to his old stomping ground”. Jack will read from his most recent publication ‘Rehabilitating the Serpent’. There will be music and refreshments on the night.
The weekend entertainment kicks off with the return of the Lough Ree Monster on the Shannon this Friday night at 9.30 pm. The monster’s return will be followed by ‘80s disco music with DJ Martin.
Saturday night sees dancing with Country music legend Mike Denver at the Big Red Barn – not to be missed!
On Sunday, The Conquerors provide the music for what promises to be a wonderful dancing and jiving competition in the Big Red Barn with €300 in prizes up for grabs!
The weekend will draw to a close as we wave goodbye to the Lough Ree Monster for yet another year with a fireworks display at 9.30 pm.
So head along to Lanesboro Ballyleague this weekend and catch a glimpse of the Lough Ree Monster before it returns to the depths of the Shannon!
