GALWAY 2020 OPENING CEREMONY
Beginning in the farthest reaches of Galway on St Brigid’s Day, fiery celebrations will erupt in towns and villages across the county in keeping with the ancient traditions of the Irish Celtic calendar.
The ceremony will travel across the county from 2 to 7 February encompassing An Spidéal, Tuam, Ballinasloe, Clifden, Portumna and Athenry, before a final installment at South Park in Galway City on 8 February.
You've just got to make your way to Galway this week for a week-long Fire Tour, which will be blazing a trail across the county to kick off Galway's reign as European Capital of Culture 2020!
