Leitrim Roots Festival
Leitrim Genealogy Centre participated in the organization and running of a major Leitrim Roots Festival in April 2006 and again in 2007. The Festival was of great interest to people whose ancestors came from Co. Leitrim or people who were born in Co. Leitrim.
The Festival was a wonderful week-long event with organized activities including guided tours to different historic and beautiful areas in the county. There were lectures on roots-related topics and evenings of traditional entertainment, with Irish music, song and dance. Participants in the Festival were accommodated in Leitrim hotels and guesthouses and were provided with a full series of optional daytime events.
We are now planning Roots Festival 2013 which will run from 20th to 28th September, 2013. We have a dedicated website now online which contains information about the weeks activities, accommodation etc. It can be found at the following web address www.leitrimrootsfestival.com
