This past Friday (Sept 23) was National Culture Night and each town had its own events taking place. Here in Athlone, we participated in some pretty exciting ones! First we got to take a free Viking Cruise on the River Shannon.
The information was interesting, but it was mostly the beautiful views from the river that I enjoyed. Then we headed down to the PassionFruit Theatre to hear some fantastic traditional music!
After the live music we went to a great little play called "Two" with just two actors playing multiple roles set in a bar scene and it was wonderful! It was so great to experience so much culture in one night and see how the locals really appreciate their history, music, and art!
