20th April 2017

On Tuesday 2nd May at 11.00am Mayor Guss O Connell will launch South Dublin County Council’s Bealtaine Festival in the Louis Fitzgerald Hotel, Naas Road, Dublin 22.

The month of May belongs to the Bealtaine festival, celebrating creativity as we age! The Bealtaine Festival gives everyone the opportunity to discover a new talent or find a new way to use an old skill. It is an opening to make new friends and connect with your community. Bealtaine is co-ordinated by Age and Opportunity, the national organisation working to promote greater participation by older people in society. The name "Bealtaine" comes from the ancient Celtic festival of that name celebrating springtime, freshness and renewal. >
