On the occasion of the 25th Anniversary of the establishment of Fingal County  Council,  and  on behalf of the Arts Office, we welcome you to Culture Night Fingal 2019. Culture Night is an annual all-island public event that celebrates culture, creativity and the arts. This year it will take place on Friday 20th September 2019. For one night only arts and cultural organisations, churches, castles and historic houses in Fingal will extend their opening hours to the public, highlighting all the fantastic cultural facilities and talented people in the locality.

We are also celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Council’s Municipal Art Collection with a major exhibition Estuary, hosted by Draíocht and featuring artworks from the collection. There will be an opportunity to meet the curators, four leading Fingal artists, Una Sealy RHA, James English RHA, Joshua Sex and Sanja Todorovic who will provide an exhibition tour and talk. For Culture Night in Swords this year, the Arts Office invited professional writers from Fingal, through an open call opportunity,to respond to the heritage and culture of Swords,its people and environs. A combination of poets, playwrights and novelists were selected and will perform alongside musicians Celtic Breeze and members of Comhaltas Ceoltóirí Éireann at a live literature and music event at Swords Castle co-hosted by Fingal’s Economic Enterprise & Tourism Department.


Join us for these events and more. Enjoy a variety of music, theatre, exhibitions, films, tours and talks specifically programmed for Culture Night in Fingal at participating venues. Rory O’Byrne County Arts Officer
