The Dan Paddy Andy Festival Press Office is happy to announce that all one hundred people who took part in the ‘Festival Bog Walk’ are all back safe and accounted for.
“There was concern for a few who had overindulged in the sandwiches and tae in the bog but they have shown up on the radar,” the office spokesman has confirmed.
“There were however a few split sides arising out of the humour at the Storytelling Night and nearly everyone at the festival had their Old Lobby Washed Down when Brendan Shine and his band played in the marquee,” the statement went on.
In a shocking development in the Stacks mountains, the famous Dan Paddy Andy Waltzing Competition saw the reigning champions fall to the dazzling footwork of Tim and Catherine Kelleher from Killarney.
“Lyreacrompane’s Real Rural Festival was opened by former soccer international and Ireland manager, Eoin Hand who bravely ventured into a hotbed of Gaelic football and survived. He is the first International manager to sing a song in Lyreacrompane which now makes him even more famous.
The festival finished on Bank Holiday Monday at 7pm for no other reason than the fact that there was no one left standing after a total of twenty hours of Marquee dancing over the four days!!! The Dan Paddy Andy Festival Committee is threatening to do it all again – for the 18th time in a row! – in 2015,” the statement concluded.
