Joe Dolan Festival a Huge Boost to Tourism in Mullingar

Mullingar Chamber of Commerce President Pat Whelan said, “The Joe Dolan festival is going to be great for the town. Joe was such a well known and well loved entertainer who was always associated with his home town; it’s great to see him remembered in this way. It’s wonderful for the fans as well, to visit the place where see where Joe grew up and see where he lived for so many years. We have the statue in the Market Square, Mullingar House, the Greville Arms and the golf club, all places associated with Joe over the years.

The August bank holiday is always a busy one in Mullingar as a lot of local people who have moved away come home for the cemetery Sundays that take place this weekend. The festival will be another boost to trade; anything that gets more visitors to Mullingar and creates a bit of buzz is a positive in my book.

I would encourage all local businesses and the local community to come out and support this event to boost morale in the town and show visitors what a smashing place Joe’s home town is.”
