of the events that will take place during Ballycastle Festival
which will run from 1st 10th August are:
car racing comes to Ballycastle on the August Bank Holiday
Monday as part of the street festival. People are asked to
make their own go-carts and enter them before the day. There
will be 3 categories: 10-13years, 13-16years and an adult
section. All go-carts must be powered by gravity alone. Contact
Máirtín Flannery, Liam O'Toole or John Burke
for more details.
Céide Rose' competition returns on the 1st August
and gets top billing on the opening night of the festival.
The winner is selected based on her personality and she should
be a good role model for the festival and for Ballycastle/Belderrig
during the week as she will present most of the prizes and
be centre stage for most of the events. In contrast to beauty
pageants, The Céide Rose bills itself as a celebration
of the "aspirations, ambitions, intellect, social responsibility
and Irish heritage" of modern young women. Contact Ann
O'Donnell, Rosaleen Flannery, Deirdre Kelly or Hannah Kelly
for more details.
One of the highlights of the festival will be the flotilla
of boats leaving Ballycastle pier and arriving at Belderrig
pier. This is a special occasion that will be talked about
in years to come, so come and be a part of it. All people
or boats wanting to take part in this event must be registered
before taking part. Contact Tommy Flannery, Jimmy Healy, T.J.
Flannery, Martin McCann or Noel Kelly for more details
