Theme for Goldsmith Festival 2020

This years theme has just been announced:


2020 THEME

With 2020 being the 250th anniversary of the publishing of Goldsmith’s great poem, “The Deserted Village” in 1770, it is appropriate that this years festival will centre on this poetic masterpiece and it’s themes. With Irish Agriculture, particularly the Beef Industry, coming under increasing pressure on both the economic and climate fronts, this years theme seeks to explore the future for the Irish beef and indeed wider food industry.

Our Theme:

“The Deserted Village”

As ‘Rural virtues leave the land’

What now for Irish Agriculture and it’s ‘Bold Peasantry’

  1. Dear Sir/Madam
    I wish to know if the “Goldsmith Festival 2020” is still going ahead, as I have booked “Cooney’s Hotel” for the weekend of the Festival, I am from Ballymore, Mullingar, Co/Westmeath.
    It would be good to go for the 250th Anniversary of “The Deserted Village”
    Yours :GERRARD ENNIS
