After a spellbinding, sunshine filled few days, Muckno Mania 2017 came to a happy ending and as the fairy doors close for another year, we relive the success of this well established Festival, and one that generates positivity and community goodwill.
Our magical four day event began on Thursday 6th July and the people of Castleblayney took up their all-inclusive invitation to this much anticipated event that held all the promise of a real life fairy-tale brought to life!
This year we had "A Festival of Fairytales" where mystical fairies, brave princes, royal princesses, noble kings and queens, enchanted castles and magical kingdoms came to life in the imagination of each spectator looking on.
Overall, this, our town Festival has once again regenerated town and community spirit. It mobilises the community and businesses of Castleblayney by focusing on developing a bespoke experience for all.
Engaging the community and locals has made the Festival what it is. Its positive impact provides an unrivalled social dividend with endless socio-cultural benefits for the town.
