An Tóstal was the name for a series of festivals first held Ireland in 1953 as a celebration of Irish life. It continued on until 1958 when it died out in most areas except Drumshanbo. This year An Tostal in Drumshanbo celebrates its 70th Anniversary. These celebrations start with a parade which kicks off a week long celebration of Irish culture and will include family activities, drive in bingo, Seamus O’Rourke, Johnny Brady, The Tumbling Paddies Fireworks and much more.
