A carnival atmosphere for EAF closing weekend

THE Earagail Arts Festival is delighted to welcome illuminated processional spectacle company, Inishowen’s LUXe back this year for its closing weekend.

LUXe are national leaders in this beautiful artform with the team of Mark Hill and Many Blinco having won numerous awards and commissions across Ireland and Europe and for the 24th festival year they return with their spectacle event, Puja.

They are Inishowen based and are all set to yet again illuminate Fort Dunree near Buncrana for the second year in a row for this year’s Earagail Arts on Saturday, July 21.


In the lead up to this closing weekend event LUXe will present another event on Tory Island and in Dunfanaghy in association with the festival.

Immram is a class of Old Irish tales concerning a hero’s sea journey to the Otherworld and tells that in the time of Lir, adventurers bearing gifts and offerings travelled across seas from distant lands seeking truths and hoping to learn what the future held.

On the closing weekend, LUXe will present Puja at Fort Dunree, Buncrana, on Saturday 21.

Puja marks the culmination of the Immram journey by LUXe at the beautiful cliff-top location which will again be a wonderful sight for the festival’s last few days.

It will be a sensory feast of processional sculpture, what LUXe are renowned for, aerial acrobatics, dancing fire, shadow play, illuminated installation and much more.
