The under age club of Argideen Rangers hosted a “Come Dine with Me” at a packed Dome on Friday night last to get this year’s festival off to a great start.
On Saturday night Stephanie Rainey entertained the younger age group at The Dome.
The festival was officially opened by Clonakilty born author Louise O’Neill on Sunday night. Her father, Haulie is the trainer of the Argideen Rangers junior footballers who will meet Ardfield this week-end in the West-Cork semi-final.
Prior to the opening, the Blarney Brass and Reid Band lead the Fancy Dress Parade through the streets which were crowded with people who were royally entertained by the numerous floats that participated in this year’s event. The standard was exceptionally high and the participants deserve great credit for the amount of effort that they put in to entertain the masses.
Later that night “Frank and Walters” made a return visit to the Dome.
On Thursday next mass will be celebrated at Our Lady’s Well at 4pm. This beautiful tradition goes back centuries and is still proving popular with both locals and visitors.
The Dome will host Cliona Hagan later that night. The support act will feature a Joe Dolan Tribute. The late beloved Joe himself played The Dome and the tribute will feature his nephew Adrian Dolan and Karen Carroll. This is a seated event.
On Friday night the ever -popular Children’s Fancy Dress Parade will take place at 7.30pm. Food Stalls will feature on the streets also on the night and entertainment will be provided by the well- known Tipperary singer Louise Morrissey.
On Saturday night, Gerald Ahern with The Midnight Sons followed by the ever- popular Kilkennys will keep The Dome rocking.
On Sunday The Dog Show will be held at 3pm. An afternoon Tea Dance will take place in The Community Hall with music by Finbarr Dennehy.
Pat Fitz will be the closing act in The Dome later that night.
