For the past 25 years, Bealtaine has grown into Ireland’s largest co-operative arts festival with over 3,000 events taking place last year in cities, towns and villages throughout the country.
The national Bealtaine festival, co-ordinated by Age & Opportunity in partnership with local authorities and arts and older people’s organisations, features older people as artists and performers, as event organisers and as audiences and participants. Janet Gaynor of the Donegal Older People’s Council expressed their delight ‘..to be associated with the Bealtaine Programme and encourage people to attend the events…’ It is this unique collaboration across generations that makes the festival special each year. For Donegal Bealtaine 2022, we have commissioned Willow Craft Workshops with renowned crafts person Helena Golden in 6 Workshops, all equipment provided free of charge.
