• The village of Cong will host a unique gathering later this month called CongRegation. It’s the 6th year of this free to attend festival that will this year centre around the theme of Ideas.

    To take part in the 3 day event you must however, submit a 600 word article on the theme of Ideas and that will be posted on the conference website.

    The event runs from Friday, November 23rd to Sunday the 25th and it tends to generate an economic boom in the south Mayo village with large numbers of people travelling nationally and internationally for the seven separate events that make up the weekend’s  programme.

    Eoin Kennedy the organiser of CongRegation gave Midwest News more details today and anyone interested in finding out more are advised to check the website
