We are delighted to announce that the 50th Anniversary FBD Queen of The Land Festival will take place from 7th – 9th November 2014 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. They have been a significant part of our festival over the past number of years and we are delighted that they will join us again for our 50th Anniversary
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 this year to ensure that the 50th FBD Queen of the Land festival is the best yet and with a superb line-up of entertainment you won’t be disappointed. This year we have increased our jam packed line up with a vintage parade of the contestants and their princesses on Friday night with an official opening ceremony in the town square. Entertainment will take place all day on Saturday in Distillery Lane with Tug O’ War, Bouncing Castles, face painters, live bands and much more. Sunday will include a trip to Tullamore Dew and live music in the Bridge Centre. Music for the weekend will include bands such as Declan Nerney, Transmitter, Ruaile Buaile and many more. With such an exceptional line up, the 50th Anniversary Queen of the Land is one you can’t afford to miss.
Our esteemed judging panel this year consists of our reigning Queen of the Land, the fantastic Geraldine Barrett, FBD representative Amanda Brennan, former Macra Na Feirme President Alan Jagoe and our guest judge, 1989 Queen of the Land winner Anna Marie McHugh. 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 50th 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 50th FBD Queen of the Land festival on the 7th – 9th November.
Go raibh míle maith agaibh.
