Arts Festival in Skehana1991
This was to be the first of a number of annual arts festivals to be held in Skehana.
In 1991 a group of people were sitting in Costello’s Pub listening to Fr. Pat O’Brien talking about one of the highights of his year ……… attending Clifden Arts Festival. Someone in the group suggested that Skehana should run it’s own Arts Festival and so the seed of the first Skehana Arts Festival was sown.
