Monasterevin ‘Venice of Ireland’ Festival 2013

Festival logo

Last year I had the great opportunity to be involved with the Venice of Ireland festival in Monasterevin. An this year I am delighted to be involved again. This annual festival promotes the Town of Monasterevin in Kildare, known as the Venice of Ireland for its unusual numerous bridges and waterways. This year I not only get the chance to capture some stunning images but I also got to design the festival brochure, which despite an error on one of the pages turned out quite well. The festival will be held over the weekend of  12th – 13th July with a scaled down calender of events. For more information on whats happening you can check the festivals Facebook Page or on Twitter

    Fascinating little town. I just read up on Monasterevin, spurred on to do so by your blogs on it.

    This looks like a great place to be, Ed. It’s my husband’s birthday 12th July. This might make a nice treat 🙂

  11. Hello Ed, Thank you for liking my recent post on Ireland. I had no idea that there was another place in Ireland referred to as Venice (as well as Cork), so was very interested in your post about Monasterevin. I look forward to learning more about it.

    Cheers,
    Genevieve

    • Thanks Genevieve, So glad you liked it. It got the name due to the unusually high number of bridges in the town, with both the canal and river barrow to be crossed. Its been my home for the last several years and has a fascinating history, which I hope to expand on shortly, 🙂

      Eddie
