Cong Hands of Fame – Sunday 19th July

It’s all hands for the wall as Ryan Tubridy and Rose Of Tralee Maria Walsh get set to enter The Cong Hands Of Fame Wall.  

Chairman of the Cong Festival Committee Patrick Luskin said “The Cong Hands Of Fame Award is a tribute to the contribution that the recipients have made to Ireland and our reputation within and beyond these shores.” 

The unveiling of the Cong Hands of Fame will take place on Sunday 19th July at 10am at the statue in Cong. All are welcome.

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.
