PublicConsultation2Public Consultation 1 - Study Area and Constraints


We will hold three stages of non-statutory public consultation. The first public consultation will take place in June 2019, where we will ask for your feedback on the study area and key constraints, and present our consultation roadmap. It will also be an opportunity for you to meet the project team, who can answer any questions you may have.


The project team will consider feedback and submissions from the non-statutory public consultation in their development of potential route corridor options. The second public consultation will then seek feedback and submissions on these route options and from these, the third and final public consultation will seek feedback and submissions on one emerging preferred route corridor.

Feile Patrick Byrne smallFEILE PATRICK BYRNE - Irish Traditional Arts Festival

Dates: 11 - 14 April

Venue: Carrickmacross Town

The Mairtín O’Connor Band, Gerry ‘fiddle’ O’Connor and the Salamanca Céilí Band are among the confirmed artists for this year’s Féile Patrick Byrne in Carrickmacross, Co. Monaghan. Organised since 2007 by the local branch of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann, the féile honours the local 19th century harper Patrick Byrne who was the first Irish traditional musician ever photographed. The Mairtín O’Connor Band – Mairtín with Cathal Hayden and Seamie O’Dowd - top the bill. All master musicians, together they produce music of astounding virtuosity. Their vibrant sound has been described as verging on perfection and redefining one’s concept of brilliance. Genuinely, their concert on 13 April can be rated as one not to be missed. Returning to the féile this year is legendary fiddle player Gerry O’Connor. Gerry will both teach and perform at the féile, giving audiences a perfect opportunity to sample the rich Oriel music tradition showcased on his latest album, Last Night’s Joy, and book, The Rose in the Gap. A must for all fiddle fans. Dancers will be well catered for with champion dancer Aoife McCabe giving a sean nós dance workshop, followed by the sets céilí with The Salamanca. For those who want to take it easier, there will be music sessions, a singing session plus heritage events. Carrickmacross Comhaltas / Féile Patrick Byrne would like to thank our funders, the Arts Council, Monaghan County Council, the Department of Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht and the Comhaltas Meitheal Programme for their support.
