Welcome to the website of the 4th annual Celtic Fringe Festival.

In this, the year of The All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil in Sligo , we welcome one and all from far and wide to the village of Grange in north Co. Sligo, Ireland, for a celebration of this area's inextricable links with the Spanish Armada of 1588.

In that fateful year, 3 ships of the mighty Armada met their end on neighbouring Streedagh Beach and the events that followed were memorably recounted by Spanish Captain Francisco de Cuellar in his memoirs.

This year's festival, which takes place between September 19th-21st 2014 will recount many of the events which took place, as well as celebrate the many diverse cultural links that exist between Spain and Ireland. From lectures to workshops, theatre to musical events galore, and much more besides, we extend a warm welcome to one and all.

We do advise patrons to download the programme by clicking on the programme image to the left, and, as we expect many of our events to sell out, we'd advise you to purchase tickets in advance on the website. Do enjoy the events which await you, and we look forward to extending the hand of friendship to you during the Celtic Fringe Festival.
