Galway Wins Capital of Culture for 2020

On 15th July 2016 all the hard work and effort paid off for Galway City & County as it was announced that we had won the title.

Athenry town was a key element in attaining the designation as a participant in the pilot project ‘Small Towns, Big Ideas’.  Our pilot projects ‘Incredible Edible Athenry’ and ‘An Artist Outstanding in their Field’ really demonstrated community spirit and participation.

Between Art, Culture and Heritage, Athenry has a wealth of knowledge and talent on offer.  We look forward to sharing the bounty with Europe and the entire county in 2020 and years to come.

Stay tuned for more updates on what Athenry will be getting up to in the coming months.
