Star Wars fans descend on the Wild Atlantic Way

Fáilte Ireland’s ‘May the 4th Be With You’ festival wraps up today after three days of events across the Kerry villages of Ballyferriter, Portmagee and Valentia Island and Donegal’s Inishowen Peninsula.

Celebrating May the 4th (the day when fans across the globe commemorate the Star Wars Universe), the festival included a host of fun activities for all-ages and sought to capitalise on the enthusiasm for the movie series, following filming for recent Star Wars films in locations along the Wild Atlantic Way.

Highlights over the weekend in Kerry included an epic lightsabre battle on the streets of Portmagee and a performance from Dingle native and five time World Champion Dancer David Geaney, who brought his hit Broadway show, Velocity, to Ballyferriter.

Following the success of Fáilte Ireland’s first ‘May the 4th Be With You’ festival in Kerry in May 2018, the festival also took place on the Inishowen Peninsula, Donegal this year.
