THE programme for this year’s Éigse Michael Hartnett Literary and Arts Festival has been released by the organising committee.

Promising an exciting opening night, with The Hit Machine Drummers and Lantern Parade, the programme includes readings, music, song,  film, exhibitions, launches and a bus tour of Hartnett country.

The Red Door Gallery in Newcastle West was the venue for the launch which was performed by Mayor of the city and county of Limerick, Cllr Francis Foley.
