Celebrate artists from the Celtic/Atlantic regions of Spain, England and Holland whose traditions were linked with Ireland through the great maritime tragedy of 1588.

On 21st September, 1588, over 1,100 men on three great ships of the Spanish Armada lost their lives near the beach at Streedagh, Co Sligo. Since then, the people of North Sligo have commemorated the lives of those soldiers, sailors, noble and folkmen in various ways.

This September brings the 7th annual Celtic Fringe Fest to various locations in Sligo. Celebrate artists from the Celtic/Atlantic regions of Spain, England and Holland whose traditions were linked with Ireland through that fateful voyage.
