fnabfront

We’re in for a big treat this year as Féile na Bealtaine, our annual arts and music festival comes around again. With 25 listed visual arts events not to mention the countless other events that would take too long to mention, I decided to just highlight some of the art events organised by artists who have been part of our printmaking group.

Tá an fhéile is fearr ar domhain tagtha arís! Féile na Bealtaine! Ós rud é go bhfuil an méid sin ar siúil nílim ach ag díriú ar roinnt bheag den chlár fís ealaíona. Tá tuilleadh eolas, gan dabht, le fáil anseo Féile na Bealtaine.
