Commenting on this year’s programme for Culture Night, Minister Deenihan added: “I am delighted to launch the annual Culture Night celebrations. The extraordinary night of cultural festivities has grown each year since its inception in 2006 with inspiring commitment from local authorities, cultural organisations and participants throughout the country. There is a diverse programme of performances, events and exhibitions available to the public. Figures show increased tourist numbers for the nationwide event, and in this the year of the Gathering even greater numbers can be expected to participate. I would like to personally commend all the volunteers and staff of the various locations nationwide who work tirelessly to ensure that Culture Night is a success.”
