May the 4th be with Inishowen 04.03.19

FOLLOWING the success of Fáilte Ireland’s first ‘May the 4th Be With You’ festival in May 2018, Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin, announced that the festival will take place again this year, with events along the Wild Atlantic Way in both Kerry and Inishowen. The ‘May the 4th Be With You’ festival 2019 will run from 3rd - 5th May.
Kicking off on May the 3rd in the Kerry village of Portmagee and for the first time, across the Inishowen Peninsula, the three-day festival will include a host of fun activities for all-ages to celebrate May the 4th, the day when fans across the globe commemorate the Star Wars Universe.

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. The image that the film created was second to none and now the Government is in a position to throw its weight behind a brilliant festival which will be coming to Donegal for the first time. 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.”
A full programme of events for the ‘May the 4th Be With You’ festival will be unveiled soon, please visit: www.wildatlanticway.com for more information.
