The Bleeding Pig

First off for those who don’t know, the Bleeding Pig is the name given locally to one of the rock formations on the cliffs between Portrane and Donabate. The aim of the Festival is to bring together different cultural groups on the peninsula of Donabate/Portrane  under the one grouping. In this way we hope to attract a wider audience and  appreciation of the culture groups in our area.
