Deputy Patrick O’Donovan wishes to congratulate all of those involved in the hugely successful Westfest 2011 which brought thousands of people into Newcastle West over the last weekend.

“The organising committee deserved great credit for organising such a varied and entertaining festival that was enjoyed by so many visitors to the town,” said Deputy O’Donovan. “I’d also like to thank all of the sponsors, the Gardaí, Limerick County Council and the many volunteers and stewards who gave their time freely to ensure that the event went off without a hitch”
