  • Ciaran Mc Menamin, Cultural Champion, Actor and Author

    It was great to be part of last year’s F Live Arts Festival and I can’t wait for what’s on offer this year. Paul Brady at Ardhowen will be electric! Having spent a lot of last summer and autumn at Literary and Arts festivals all over Ireland I am proud to say that the festival in my home town, Enniskillen, was up there with the best: a festival that truly punches above its weight. F live offers quality entertainment and unique opportunities to access the arts and culture, try new things out, suitable for the whole community. The effort and energy the F Live team and all the volunteers put in is outstanding.
