Welcome to the Dromineer Nenagh Literary Festival Website
Fáilte romhaibh go léir go Féile Litríochta Dhrom Inbhir agus an Aonaigh 2021.
Welcome to the 18th annual Dromineer Nenagh Literary Festival. Despite the restrictions and limitations of the past year, we have been working continuously to be ready to bring you a real live festival again this autumn. We are so happy to be in a position to host and support so many talented writers and performers after the challenges lockdown imposed on the arts sector in the last 18 months.
We remain devoted to bringing together writers and audiences at unique and innovative events in the historic and intimate surroundings of Nenagh and Lough Derg.
We are proud to present a packed programme, rich in imagination, designed to entertain, stimulate and excite you. We are delighted to introduce the best of our talented new young writers along with many household names. We know they will delight, inspire and surprise you!
Personally, I would like to thank my dedicated committee and volunteers for their hard work in producing this festival. Special thanks to our principal funders/partners, The Arts Council, Tipperary Co. Council, Creative Ireland, Nenagh Arts Centre, and all our local sponsors.
