Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin said: “Following the success of the inaugural ‘May the 4th Be With You’ festival in Kerry in May 2018, Fáilte Ireland has worked with local communities across the Inishowen peninsula to extend the festival to Donegal this year.”

Speaking about the addition of Inishowen as a location for this year’s festival, Minister for Education and Skills, Joe McHugh said: “The decision by the makers of Star Wars to choose Donegal, and Malin Head in particular, was inspired. This is a great opportunity for fans to be on the site of some of the most stunning scenes in the movie and to sample the best of what the Wild Atlantic Way has to offer.”
Heidi Doherty, Programme Manager at Inishowen Tourist Office, added: “The ‘May the 4th Be With You’ festival is a wonderful way to celebrate the Star Wars filming location at Malin Head and it promises to be an action packed weekend. Today (Monday, April 15th) we not only announced the programme of activity, we officially cut the ribbon on the newly renamed road 'R2D2', formerly the R242."
