Greek, Turkish and Belgian International Folk Dance groups have accepted the invitation to come to DamhsaFest 2010 this July. Negotiations are taking place with a group form Brittany also.  DamhsaFest 2010 takes place from Wednesday 21st July to Sunday 26th July.  The visiting colourful dancers will perform in Cork City Centre and a number of county towns including Carrigaline.  Funding a major festival like DamhsaFest proves difficult as most of the performances are in the open air and free to the public.  The organizers are seeking an overall sponsor or sponsors for segments of the festival.  A Family Table Quiz is being run in Douglas GAA Hall on Sunday April 11th at 2.00pm.  Everyone welcome. For further information phone 087 266 0696.
