Applefest 2021

As we move into 2021 with a cautious optimism, we are excited to be formulating ideas and plans for our 2021 programme. This year we hope to bring you an interesting array of events, whether it be online or in person, and continue to enhance your Clonmel Applefest experience!

Indigenous: Harvest Celebration Project

This fascinating project based around workshops with Dr Billy Mag Fhlionn will take place over four Zoom sessions and will explore folklore traditions and rituals with a view to forming a Tipperary-based troupe of festival revelers.

If you are an artist, crafter, musician, folklorist, maker or perfomer and wish to take part, simply scan the QR code or follow this link to sign up.

We are very proud to have our poetry booklet “Wild & Wonderful: Poems from Poetry Lane” available to buy now from Chou’s Cottage, the Tudor Artisan Hub, the Healthy House, Cahir and the Bookmarket, Clonmel.

This is a collection of the 33 poems that were submitted to the Applefest Poetry Call Out, 2020, curated by Eileen Acheson and designed and edited by Jennifer Cox.
