ICSA sheep chairman John Brooks says that the Roscommon Lamb Festival 2015, which runs from April 29th to May 4th this year, will have widespread appeal and offers something for everyone, urban and rural.
“The festival is a unique celebration of sheep farming, food and local heritage,” said Mr. Brooks, speaking following the recent launch of the event. “The attractions include a special sheep sale on April 29th at Roscommon mart, guided tours of Elphin windmill and other heritage sites, a number of farm walks, a farmers’ market and a variety of children’s activities – in other words, something for all the family.”
“Irish lamb is known worldwide for its quality and taste, and a festival like this brings it right back to the heart of the local community. It’s also a great opportunity to strengthen the link between farmers, consumers and tourism,” he concluded.
