Cavan

Culture and Creativity Strategy 2018-2022

County Cavan is a haven for culture and creativity, boasting a collaborative and community-minded approach to the development of the arts that has produced such notable figures as 18th-century poet Cathal Buí Mac Giolla Ghunna ("Yellow Cathal McElgunn") and, more recently, celebrity chef and author Neven Maguire.

Part of a former Gaelic kingdom, Cavan’s dedication to heritage and the passion and energy of its community has produced a Creative Ireland Culture and Creativity Strategy that builds upon Cavan’s rich cultural legacy to creatively encourage and engage citizens of all ages, creeds and backgrounds.

A highlight of Cavan’s impressive array of initiatives is ‘Scéalta Dár Talamh’ (Irish for ‘stories of our land’), a one-day event at Ballyhaise Agricultural College that brings together some of the finest local artists and musicians in an expression of appreciation for the landscapes of the county.
