Located on the Wild Atlantic Way in Donegal, this year we are taking the opportunity to rejoice in the richness of our heritage, culture and traditions. The underlying theme of the Festival is the celebration of Donegal women, past and present. All our events highlight the natural talents of the people of Donegal, from music, arts, food and theatre. As the Chairperson of the Festival, I would like to thank all the volunteers, including the Board of Directors, all the committees and our hard-working street ambassadors for their creativity, vision and pride in the Festival. To the sponsors and donors, we could not do this without you. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, thanks to the people of Dungloe, the Rosses and our returning visitors, we appreciate your year on year support. Please join us & see for yourself the warmth of a Donegal welcome in this the 52nd Mary From Dungloe International Arts Festival. Anthea Atkinson, Cathaoirleach.
