Getting underway on Friday, July 5th, with a monster bingo evening in the community hall, doors open at 5 pm and the chance to claim the first prize of the evening is on offer at 6.30 pm.

Saturday, Ballymartle's pitch plays host to an impressive line-up of entertainment, with a wellness walk at 11 am, all so kicking off the day is a pet's corner, which is on the agenda for the day.

From 11am to 12.30 pm, the expected large attendance will be entertained by the nimble feet of the Irish dancers.

The afternoon has a packed offering; face painting, bubble soccer, bouncing castles, retro games and wipe out, all backed by some super sounds provided by the on-site DJ.

The festival's final day starts with a dog show at 11am.

Later in the programme on Sunday, there is a martial arts demonstration at 1pm, balloon modelling and archery all on view.

If you need to keep the troops entertained, there is a bungee trampoline, face painting and bouncing castle provided.

The organisers are also encouraging families to bring a picnic, and relax to the sounds of live music or watch the big clash between Cork and Limerick on a big screen at the venue.

Also on site for both days are market stalls and food trucks of a wide variety .
