Adams welcomes Launch of Féile programme
Sinn Fein west Belfast MP Gerry Adams has welcomed the publication today of Féile 09, the West Belfast Festival programme.
The Féile is the biggest community arts festival in Ireland.
Mr. Adams said:
“I want to commend the Féile organisers for all of their hard work and for once again putting together an outstanding programme for this 21st birthday celebration of Féile.
Over the 10 days that the festival will take place - from July 31st to August 9th - almost a quarter of a million people, including many visitors from overseas, will attend Féile events.
Féile has always been about community. One of its key roles when first established 21years ago was to spotlight the positive side of the west Belfast community and to provide a stage for the enormous energy and creativity of the people who live in west Belfast. This year will be no exception.
