Home to Mayo Tradfest
The Mayo Manchester Tradfest is an award winning festival that has been a huge success since it was launched during the gathering in 2013 and became a flagship event winning an award from Failte Ireland as the biggest UK organised Gathering in Ireland.
It has since established itself as one of the biggest celebrations of non-competitive Traditional Irish Music, Song and Dance and represented County Mayo in the Failte Ireland Industry Awards for festivals attracting over 50,000 visitors. Its unique formulae of involving nearly a 1,000 performers in 100 events all over Mayo is the secret to its success along with its very wide range of contacts in the media all over the world.
The group’s social media platforms and website helps it to sell out its events and attract the diaspora from all over the world. As well as linking up with the Manchester Mayo Association, it also works closely with the Dublin Mayo Association and the ones in the States along with GAA clubs who it hopes to attract over at the same time.
