This information about Marymass has been added to the website. In response to discussion at the AGM, this is a reminder to all members and friends to start to get the word out about the festival. To paraphrase what Danny Kyle might say “Tell your Gran, your friends, eveyone you meet that the Marymass Folk Festival is the place to be this August. It’s going to be great, mega … be there!”
