Art Trail

Welcome to the 16th Clancy Brothers Festival Art Trail, which provides a platform for new, emerging and established artists from all genres, regardless of age or ability, from Carrick-on-Suir, the Suir Valley area and beyond to exhibit their latest eclectic creations.

This year’s Art Trail programme, coordinated by the Tudor Artisan Hub, is packed with lots of exciting creative initiatives stitched with Eco threads…including our first ever En Plein Air Competition with a €450 Prize Pot!, an Eco-Relove Slow Fashion outdoor photoshoot with photographer Noreen Duggan and young emerging models, pop-up art demonstrations with Micheal O’Fearghail, a Creative Writing Taster workshop with Lorna Grant, Trash to Treasure art activity for children with Magueritte Kent, Gel Plate Printing with Sonya Weston, Youth Be Happy Art Project and so much more.
