Balbriggan is situated in the north of Fingal and enjoys a seaside location. Ardgillan Castle is on the outskirts of the town and is a wonderful attraction to visit. Both can be easily reached by public transport or by car via the M1 Motorway.
It has been a tough few months for everyone including the arts but thanks to the fighting spirit of the artist community, this year’s Dublin Plein Air painting festival runs from Monday 20 to Sunday 26 July and will bring artists from all over Ireland to paint outdoors (en plein air) around Fingal.
Rather than focusing on the organisation of in-person public events, local heritage groups and organisers, families and communities are being invited to develop projects around this year’s theme of ‘Heritage and Education: Learning from our Heritage’.
