We are delighted to announce that the 49th FBD Queen of The Land festival in partnership with the Irish Farmer’s Journal will take place from 8th – 10th November 2013 in the Bridge House Hotel, Tullamore.
Once again, we are delighted to have FBD as main sponsors of the festival and we extend our sincere gratitude to them for their continuing support and commitment to our festival. We are also delighted to have the Irish Farmer’s Journal on board this year as our media sponsors and we thank them for their coverage of this year’s festival. We would also like to thank our associate sponsors for their generosity, support and loyalty to our festival.
Founded in 1964, the festival has gone strength to strength throughout the years and this year’s festival is no exception. We have pulled out all the stops to ensure that the 49th FBD Queen of the Land festival is the best yet and with a superb line-up of entertainment you wont be disappointed. The ever popular Bernard O'Shea will perform on Friday night, Deuces Wild will return again this year to entertain the crowds on Saturday night and Robert Mizzell will round of the weekend by playing at our gala banquet on Sunday night.
Our esteemed judging panel this year consists of our reigning Queen of the Land, the fantastic Teresa Marie Brennan, FBD representative Amanda Brennan and our guest judge RTE Radio One's, Damien O'Reilly. We are delighted to have them as part of our festival and I wish them the very best in their unenviable task of deciding the 49th FBD Queen of the Land.
Finally, I extend my gratitude to our tremendous committee for their ongoing efforts in organising this years festival, I wish all our contestants the very best of luck and I sincerely look forward to meeting you all at the 49th FBD Queen of the Land festival on the 8th – 10th November.
Go raibh míle maith agaibh.
