Made famous in song by Irish Country local star, Declan Nerney, The Marquee In Drumlish has been revived in recent years and features the best Ireland has to offer in musical talent. The festival has grown organically into one of Ireland’s leading independent music events. The three-day festival has earned its reputation by attracting big name acts including The Saw Doctors, Big Tom, Mike Denver, Kodaline, Bressie , Ryan Sheridan and Nathan Carter. Its mixture of country, folk and rock music means there is something for everyone over the weekend.
Declan Nerney, the man responsible for putting the Marquee on the worldwide stage is always in attendance to entertain the audience. Always guaranteed to draw huge crowds, seeing Declan play at The Marquee is certainly a special occasion for all country music fans.
On average crowds of over 3000 people descend on the small Co. Longford village of Drumlish for the weekend of the Marquee, one of Ireland’s best small festivals. The fun starts during the day with the Family Fun Day and Monster Bingo, before some of the best live bands in Ireland take to The Marquee stage each night.
