The final weekend of Féile an Phobail has drawn to a close - but not without a bang!
The Wolfe Tones and guests will be live from 3pm at the Falls Park for their sold out concert. Expect the Wolfe Tones to take the stage after nightfall with barnstorming close to Féile 2022.
Here is a few of our highlights:
FÉILE AN PHOBAIL POC FADA
DIVIS MOUNTAIN REGISTRATION 9.30AM, DIVIS MOUNTAIN COFFEE SHOP 10am
The infamous Féile an Phobail Poc Fada will make a return to the wonderful setting of the Divis and Black Mountain. The Poc Fada is a very proud tradition for the GAA where Hurlers and Camogs have the opportunity to demonstrate their skills and determination as they battle against the elements and the mountainous conditions to keep their balance and co-ordination as they strike a sliothar over a lengthy course in the fewest strikes possible. A special invite will be sent to all Belfast clubs to nominate a player for each section. In partnership with Rossa GAC, Gaelfast and supported and hosted by the National Trust. Part of Féile’s Youth Arts and Community Engagement Programme.
Contact Margret Flynn: 07960755645 or by email Margaret. Supported by Bourke Sports.

THE VAN MORRISON SONGBOOK
CULTÚRLANN MCADAM Ó FIACH, FALLS ROAD
Four unique song-writing talents unite to offer their take on one of Belfast’s most iconic musicians. Performing inspired versions of Van Morrison classics in this one-off event (in association with EastSide Arts Festival) are Matt McGinn, Anthony Toner, Ken Haddock and Grainne Holland (who will deliver her versions in Irish). This promises to be a memorable night: expect some great renditions, some fine guitar playing, inspired harmonies and plenty of banter back and forth across the stage.
