MORAN CULTURAL TENT-2015 Schedule of Events

Joe Moran, a County Mayo native and active member of the Irish community in this area for over 20 years, was a guiding force for the Fairfield County Irish Festival. In fact some say he was its “heart and soul.” He loved and promoted Irish music, sports, dancing, theater and celebrations until cancer claimed him on Festival weekend, 2005.  What better way to remember him and keep his spirit alive than in the tremendous celebration of so many aspects of the Irish culture on display in our cultural tent?  We could think of none!
