The Warp and Weft of Heritage Weekend
Fri 11th October - Sun 13th October 2019

Organised by

Donegal G.A.P. Heritage and History

We are delighted to announce the theme of the Warp & Weft of Heritage Weekend 2019 is Donegal Folklore, Fact and Fiction.

The festival will take place from the 11th – 13th of October in Ardara, Co. Donegal and will celebrate our rich music and storytelling traditions, and the 60th anniversary of Darby O’Gill & the Little People’s Ardara connection.

Today marks 60 years since the World Premiere took place at Dublin’s Theatre Royal with Walt Disney, Sean Connery, Jimmy O’Dea, Janet Munro, and Albert Sharpe in attendance.

Local folklorist and historian “Wee Paddy” McGill and his wife were invited to the premiere by the film’s American screenwriter, Larry Watkin, who visited Ardara in 1949 to do research for the film.

A full program of events will be released next month so mark the dates in your calendar!
