Dear Friend of Cavan,
 
I am delighted to be able to announce details of ‘Cavan Calling’, the unmissable homecoming festival for Cavan’s Diaspora, which takes place from 20-23 August 2020.
 
Cavan Calling is an exciting opportunity for Cavan people, those with ancestors from the Breffni County, or those with an affinity for Cavan, to come home for a weekend celebration of Cavan, its people, its Diaspora, its culture, heritage, music, and landscape.
An exciting and engaging programme of events has been lined up for ‘Cavan Calling’ with street concerts, an American Wake, colourful street performances and parade, a bumper fireworks extravaganza, a spectacular military tattoo, theatre, exhibitions, talks, ancestry events, a gala ball and much, much more, including the inaugural ‘Cavan Day’ on Saturday, 22nd August.
 
I wish you and yours a very Happy Christmas and look forward to seeing you in Cavan from 20-23 August.
 
Cavan is calling you home. Answer the call. 20-23 August 2020.
 
Warm regards,
 
Tommy Ryan,
