Cong Festival began in 2011 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the making of the classic film The Quiet Man. John Ford filmed the movie in Cong in 1951 and 60 years later, Cong welcomed back Maureen O’Hara to the beautiful West of Ireland Village.

Last year as part of The Gathering Ireland 2013, a specially commissioned bronze statue depicting the characters Sean Thornton and Mary Kate Danaher was unveiled by Minister of State Michael Ring.
