Lamb Festival commences today
Roscommon Lamb Festival gets underway today Wednesday April 26th.
It continues until bank holiday Monday.
The Festival is a celebration of family fun, great food, farming, heritage and crafts.
A life-size sculpture of the Ewe & Lamb will be unveiled by Mr. Joe Healy, President IFA at Roscommon Mart at 11.30am today.
This year 2017 we celebrate our 10th birthday as a festival.
Roscommon Lamb Festival is now well established as part of the annual calendar and it is thanks to the generosity of the voluntary committee members who have put in so much energy, time and talent into the running of the festival that it has survived and succeeded to the extent that is now evident.
Thanks also to our funders and sponsors, Roscommon Leader Partnership, Local Enterprise Office, Roscommon County Council, Fáilte Ireland and the many businesses and individuals who have believed in our vision and have backed it financially.
