The theme of the 2019 Mayo Day on Saturday, the 4th of May, is The Mayo Word.
The Mayo Word will be celebrated throughout the day, culminating in a flagship event taking place at the National Museum of Ireland – Country Life, Turlough .
The first musical acts to play at this year’s festival have been confirmed and it will see a range of Irish musicians take to the stage at the Museum of Country Life.
Mayo’s Lisa Canny, Cronin and Hit Machine Drummers will all be performing on the day, with the headline act to be announced shortly.
Some Gastronomic delights also await in the Food Village in Turlough on Saturday, May 4th, where visitors can enjoy locally sourced products.
Peter Hynes Chief Executive of Mayo County Council says “Mayo Day 2019 is all about asking ourselves the questions; what does being part of the Mayo community mean to me? How do I communicate my sense of pride of being from Mayo?
