The Our Balbriggan Loves Learning Festival, which takes place from Monday, March 27 to Saturday, April 1, has something for everybody.
The festival provides an opportunity for a range of groups and services to platform learning opportunities available to people in Balbriggan and surrounding areas.
“Lifelong learning is for everyone and I wish all participants and the organisers every success with this very worthwhile project,” said Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Howard Mahony.
