The community’s of Kilmainham and Inchicore are coming together this August for a festival that showcases the talents of local people and encourages all to enjoy local resources and take pride in the community. The Kilmainham-Inchicore Community Festival is a collaborative effort between the Kilmainham Arts Festival and Inchicore-based groups, who have joined forces to offer a wide variety of events on from August 24 – 27 including: a group art exhibition, a powerful one-man play, an exciting spoken word event, music, children’s activities and, most eye-catchingly to us, film screenings of documentaries made by local filmmakers. The events at the festival including these documentary screenings are all free and it looks like there’s plenty on offer for visitors to have a good time and bond with the local community.
