Thanks to Francis Humphrys for helping supply the Fringe with these wonderful artists. Thanks once again to: Chris O’Neill and all at the OPW and Garinish Island for their help and support, Susan McManamon for co-ordinating the workshops,  Jim O’ Keeffe for giving us a Fringe pop-up space this year and to Organico, Manning’s Emporium, Durrus Festival and Glebe Gardens for allowing us be part of their events.
