We have a strong infrastructure for our arts and culture scene. These include world-class festivals and events, great art galleries, theatres, museums and unspoilt archaeological sites, like Grianán of Aileach. They also include large multi-purpose venues like the Regional Culture Centre, which hosts year-round events and programmes. And we’ve lots of small local venues, like pubs and arts centres across the county.
