Siàmsa Sràide and The Green Room Present Blàth Nà Fèile
This year Siàmsa Sràide celebrates its 30th successful year and if you call yourself an East Mayo Man(or woman),then you have taken part in the festivities of Siàmsa Sràide once or twice. To help celebrate this 30th year, The Green Room (along with the Siàmsa Sràide committee) are introducing this new event, Blàth Nà Fèile.
Blàth Nà Fèile or flower of the festival is a positive, youthful, community event where local girls for maybe the first time in their young adult lives have a platform in which they can highlight their accomplishments, academic endeavours, accreditation’s, community presence and finally their strong beautiful personalities. How many young women do you know in your community (neighbour, babysitter, niece, and daughter) who strives for excellence on a regular basis…you may know all about them but does your local shop keeper. These young women are what make the future bright!! These are the types of people that will work hard to bring us out of recessionary times. Blàth Nà Fèile will celebrate these young women in their local community in the presence of their family, friends and neighbours.
The main event( taking place in the Gateway Hotel on August 2nd) is something not to be missed as a list of local entertainment including our own version of Dáithí Ó Sé..Mr Paddy Cunney will be MCing, Music by DJ Pidge along with local bands. Excellent prizes will be given to 1st , 2nd and 3rd place, with the 1st place winner going on to represent Siàmsa Sràide not only throughout the remainder of the festival but also at Mayo Rose 2015. As this is a very important decision making process we having recruited some of the best adjudicators in the county…but we won’t be giving that info away yet.
Lads…ye are probably thinking what’s all this about women..We haven’t left ye out either, the ladies will be needing escorts. But only the best will do for these ladies, so let’s have some outstanding young men represent themselves too!! Best escort on the night will win and outstanding prize sponsored by our own local PRO for Mayo GAA County Board, Mr. Aiden McLoughlin.
The feedback from this event has been extremely positive thus far with support from our own local successful business woman, Joanne Grehan ( Head of Local Enterprise Office-Mayo) saying,
“Well done on demonstrating such great community spirit and initiative, I have no doubt Swinford and East Mayo will reap great rewards.”
