The Pan Celtic International Festival returns to Carlow, Ireland in 2020, running from 14th - 19th April, and will be a celebration of the cultural links between the celtic nations of Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Brittany, Cornwall and the Isle of Man. We look forward to welcoming old friends back as well as new comers to the festival, including musicians and singers, choirs, dancers and storytellers from the six participating nations as we share our celtic language and culture at this great Easter gathering.

The International Council consists of 3 representatives appointed from each of the national committees, plus a honorary Chief Executive, who is elected by the organisation. Mr. Con Ó Conaill, who is also the Chairman currently holds this prestigious post. It was Con Ó Conaill who founded Pan Celtic. He was Chief Executive of Cork Kerry Tourism, the Irish Regional Tourism Authority for 15 years. He is also President of the Irish Pipe Bands Association. When he worked in Tralee, Con was active in Conradh na Gaeilge and Glór na nGael, all national associations that promote the Irish language.
