Winterfest Mullingar is a community initiative developed by Mullingar Chamber hoping to bring the very best Mullingar has to offer under one umbrella branding. Speaking at the pre-launch Chamber President, Tom Hyland, commented “we are very excited to launch Winterfest Mullingar and Mullingar on Ice for 2018. We hope to bring 100,000 people to Mullingar over a six-week period, with the Ice Rink alone welcoming 40,000 ice skaters” Also speaking at the pre-launch, Chamber Deputy President, Ian Kerr explained “Winterfest featuring Mullingar on Ice will be a very positive addition to the landscape locally hopefully generating €3 million in additional spending for our town. 30 temporary jobs will also be created”. The Mullingar Christmas Market, which has been a very successful event on Mount Street over the last few years, will move to the Town Park this December following on from successful events such as Picnic in the Park recently.

Festival lead, John Keane, commented at the pre-launch “This is the first time an ice rink has come to the Midlands and it is very important that the event is supported by our community. We expect this to be a successful model and an annual event in Mullingar. Mullingar on Ice looks forward to hosting fundraisers for local sports and community groups along with work nights out in the run-up to Christmas. Tickets will sell fast and for this reason, we would encourage people to pre-book their tickets from today on”.

 “We’re very excited to be bringing Ireland’s premier ice-skating experience to Mullingar” Bill Cremin from Cool Runnings Events, the company behind Mullingar on Ice commented, “a family of 4 can ice skate for €28.00, early bird tickets are available online for just €9”.

Tom Hyland also mentioned at the pre-launch “This event would not have happened without the support of Westmeath County Council and our local sponsors who have already come on board. Mullingar Chamber would like to thank them for their continued support to date”.

Mullingar Chamber is currently seeking additional sponsorship partners if you would like to support this community event please contact the Chamber directly on 044 934 4044 or email
