Over 14,000 people descended on Monaghan town at the weekend for the annual Country Music Festival.
This was the 5th year of the festival, and the weekend’s line-up included Jimmy Buckley, Michael English and Mike Denver. The festival has become a focal point for country music lovers since it first came on the scene, and each year, profits from the 4 day event go towards local charities and community groups.
Over the last four years, the festival has raised €150,000 for local charities. Julie Brannigan, Secretary of the festival says it was originally established to bring a new lease of life into Monaghan town.
