On behalf of the Doneraile Literary and Arts Society Committee I would like to express
our immense gratitude to all of the 2012 festival sponsors, for without them it would
have been very difficult, if not impossible to have held the festival at all. As
is it turned out the festival was an absolute success. The committee would also like
to extend a great thank you to all the volunteers who worked endlessly and tirelessly
in ensuring that the festival programme went smoothly to schedule throughout the
long weekend. If
you can take the time to browse through some of the pictures taken during the 2012
festival you will see pictures of some of our distinguished guests and entertainers.
The venues, such as Creagh Castle and the Churches of both denominations in Doneraile
were excellent stages for the exhibitions, readings and concert music as were the
public houses in the town which were full to capacity in the evenings with people
listening to the sound of poetry and song. It was enjoyed by so many and will be
remembered for many years to come.
