The Arts

really has found a good home in Cavan. Music and drama like to take to the streets.

For three years running, Cavan played host to the All Ireland Fleadh Cheoil – the World's largest Irish music festival.

Art Galleries and studios, culture centres, sculpture gardens, concerts, sessions, artist residencies and the County's calendar of exhibitions, lectures and cultural exchanges ensures a vibrant year round calendar of art and culture.

"TOO REAL FOR YOUR iPOD"

Here in County Cavan we know that great things happen when we celebrate the arts and encourage more people to participate.

Cavan presents three drama festivals annually: Shercock, Cavan and Maudabawn, indeed many of the world's finest actors found their stage in County Cavan. Literature too and a love of the spoken and written word is evidenced as Cavan is home to award winning publishing houses, magazines and writers.

Cavan is also home to two theatres - Ramor Theatre in Virginia and the new Townhall Cavan Arts Space in the historic Townhall building in Cavan town.
