Having been absent from last year’s festival programme the Fireworks display returned in a new location at Nenagh CBS Grounds where an estimated 2,000 people turned for this family event and enjoyed a wonderful display. Festival Chairman Tom Dowling would like to thank all those who made the festival possible, the staff at Nenagh Arts Centre, Tipperary Arts Office, Nenagh Civil Defence, The Abbey Court Hotel, Dún Mhuire, Nenagh CBS, Tipperary Volunteer Centre, Nenagh Celtic, the local Gardai, and all the artists who participated making this one of the most successful festival in years.
