Apparently those fiendish, ghoulish characters have been squatting in our village since last year and they’re rearing to stretch their arms and legs – in fact all their limbs. Dunshaughlin you have been warned!
All the news from this year’s festival coming soon!
Our giant – and not so giant – characters went down a storm in our 2016 festival. Now they’re back – with some new friends for 2017! Watch this space.
All costumes and characters are made by Dunshaughlin residents under the expert design and direction of Brian Walsh, Head of Dunshaughlin Harvest Festival Arts Team and coordinator of a portfolio preparation course at Ballyfermot College of Further Education and Ed Rourke from Bui Bolg. Bui Bolg has been working in street arts for 22 years and are specialists in Puppet and Costume making for stage, street, and TV.
