Festival for The Limerick Lady


The Limerick Lady festival rolling out from 6pm to 11pm tonight, Thursday June 16, has brought together an exciting lineup of female artists and female led projects. The festival is the brainchild of singer/ songwriter Emma Langford and was inspired by the lack of female names on major festival lineups over the summer.
