Mayo Day Weekend Celebrations in Ballina

Mayo Day Weekend Celebrations in Ballina

Mayo Day is a celebration of our ‘Mayo-ness’ in Mayo Communities worldwide. On 30th April 2016, Mayo people at home and away have an opportunity to celebrate all that is great about their progressive, can-do county. This day is an opportunity for business, communities, families and individuals to celebrate who we are, and where we come from, a day in the calendar year that recognises Mayo and its people.

The unique concept driven by Mayo County Council, will  see events take place in towns and villages around Mayo, while at the same time events will be scheduled in  Mayo Communities overseas.

We encourage all Mayo Business to play their part,  shops, bars, restaurants across the county to embrace the Mayo Day celebrations. This is an opportunity for you to ensure your business is part of this unique event.

Ballina celebrates Mayo Day with a plethora of events over the Bank Holiday weekend:
