An Tóstal Festival - Leitrim
An Tóstal (meaning the Pageant) is proudly held in Drumshanbo in County Leitrim and has continued to run every year since 1953 in celebration of Irish life and culture. This eccentric festival has it all - parades, street entertainment, art, water events, sports, games and general good craic for all the family! Remarkably, it even has a very special Stylish Silage competition which brings people from all over Ireland and across the shore.
I mean, where else could you go to see over 80 glamorous and outrageous silage bails decorated for your amusement?
The 7-days of fun that make up this unique family festival are usually in late June, for more on this event see www.antostalfestival.ie
