Mary from Dungloe Festival
July 23, 2022
The Mary From Dungloe International Arts Festival has been held annually since 1967 at the end of July in the town of Dungloe, County Donegal. The festival is centred around a competition to find out which contestant has the spirit of the festival, who is then crowned “Mary From Dungloe”.
The winner of the contest holds the title for a year and acts as an ambassador for the festival and for Dungloe. Irish emigrant communities from around the world, as well as some Irish counties and towns, participate by nominating a young woman to represent their community at the contest.
