Friary Nights

Ballyhaunis Community Council is proud to be the local partner to host the Mayo County Council Local Live Performance Programming Scheme which will see two nights of outdoor performances in Ballyhaunis on August 27 and 28 featuring Mayo-based or born artists Brian Flanagan (U.M.A.N.), Seamus Fogarty, Keith Plunkett and Train Room. The event will be hosted in a marquee erected in the grounds of St. Mary's Abbey (known locally as the Friary).

The Local Live Performance Programming Scheme is funded by the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and administered by Mayo County Council.

The scheme is intended to support local artists and the live music industry which has been badly impacted by the pandemic. The Community Council, which will handle local promotion, stewarding and ticketing, is very grateful to the Abbey Partnership for allowing the event to happen in the Friary grounds.
