Speaking after the awards Jenny de Saulles Head of Ireland’s Ancient East with Fáilte Ireland said –

“We are delighted to present this award to the Irish Maritime Festival in Drogheda which was a very worthy winner in a strong and competitive field. Our Ireland’s Ancient East initiative is very much routed in Ireland’s history and stories – festivals, events and attractions are key to its success. The Maritime Festival is a perfect fit for the kind of asset we want for Ireland’s Ancient East – bringing local history and heritage alive through food, activities and an emphasis on Drogheda’s coastal heritage. Well done to all involved in such an innovative and successful event.”
