Montgomery County AOH Irish Festival to be held June 4-6

The annual AOH Irish Festival will be held over the weekend of June 4th-6th:
Mont Clare, the little village out side of Phonexville, will come alive with Irish Music on June 4th , 5th and 6th on the picnic grounds of Saint Michael.

This event organized by the AOH Notre Dame Division will have three days of music, vendors, food and beverages. A great line up of entertainmenttt kicks off with a Ceili on Friday night with Tom Mchugh with Jim and Kevin McGillian. On Saturday gates open at 11:00 and Oliver McElone hits the stage at 12 noon followed by the very upbeat tunes of the Bogside Rouges and Wildwoods Irish Weekends favorite Paddy's Well.

Sunday morning will begin with an outdoor Mass with the Reverend Andrew McCormick and vocalist Sara Agnew. At 12 noon the music starts up again with the Misty Isle who are getting back together for this festival and to finish off the festival will be Celtic Spirit.

Over the weekend there will be Irish Dancers and Irish Thunder Pipes and Drums.

The festival will be rain or shine because of the pavilion that will also protect you from the sun. Bring a chair just in case and the cost in small. $5.00 for Friday and $7.00 for Saturday or Sunday.

All proceeds will go toward AOH charities that help support the community and those in need.
