Drogheda Arts Festival 2012

P1040141Over May bank holiday weekend 2012 The LFTT Library opened it’s doors to the festival goers of the Droichead Arts Festival. This was the celebratory culmination of a six months residency at the family home of Drogheda based artist Vivienne Byrne. As usual the LFTT subverted the conventional library form by creating a  lively, vibrant, discursive (and noisy) space. Both strangers and friends had the chance to peruse the collection at their leisure, enjoy a spot of ceol agus craic and exchange valued words over a nice cup of tea.

We were delighted to have The Rapscallion Folk and Ballad Band wake up the bookworms with a bang on a fine sunny Saturday. Thanks to Pauric McQuillan, Jim McQuillan, Paul ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald, Stuart Heslin and Cian Reay. Also thanks to local classical guitarist Emmett Fallon who managed to turn each tune into a legend with his fine portrayal of the characters behind each of the works.
