This festival would not be possible without the funding from Science Foundation Ireland. We are very grateful not only for the financial support but for the advice and guidance provided by the staff. The support and financial backing from both CEO’s of the County Councils, the public representatives of Monaghan & Cavan County Councils, a dedicated team of staff across both local authorities and CMETB.
