Monaghan Country Music Festival gets underway tonight

This year’s Monaghan Country Music Festival gets underway tonight.

The four day festival is now in its 6th year and has become a focal point for country music lovers since it first came on the scene. Profits from the four day event go towards local charities and community groups.

One of Ireland’s biggest jiving competitions will be held on Sunday afternoon. A total of €200,000 has now raised since the festival began back in 2013.
