Fresh off the back of their announcement of a record deal with Sony and new single/EP release in June, Hermitage Green will be headlining Annascaul Beerfest 2015 on Saturday August 1st.  To mark the announcement we want to give away 2 tickets.  All you have to do is like and share this announcement and get us over 1,000 ‘fans’.

As previously mentioned, we are supporting Down Syndrome Kerry this year and proceeds from our event will be donated to charity once again.

Further details of the event will be revealed over the coming weeks as well as our glossy new poster and t-shirts which we are excited to share.  One thing we are excited about this year is the expansion of Sunday in to a real family affair complete with street entertainment and food stalls.  Expect the return of some familiar items but some changes also. Stay tuned!

Annascaul Beerfest is sponsored by Crean’s Fresh Irish Lager and works in conjunction with Failte Ireland.

Charity 2015 – Down Syndrome Kerry


Annascaul Beerfest, in association with Crean’s Premium Irish Lager, is proud to announce our partnership with Down Syndrome Kerry for 2015.  Here is an insight to the work of the organisation;

“Down Syndrome Kerry’s goal is to help people with Down syndrome make their own futures as bright and independent as possible by providing them with education, support and friendship every step of the way.

Down Syndrome Kerry Branch is a voluntary group of over 200 members. As a charity, we provide many levels of support for our members. At the moment, Down Syndrome Kerry employ three part time Occupational Therapy Therapists, we have one full time and one part time speech therapists. We open a café every summer in Killarney national park, called Deenach Lodge, which provides invaluable work experience to our young adults and we have two literacy and Numeracy courses, called latch on, running in Tralee. DS Kerry provides two parents and toddler groups, one in Killarney and one in Listowel. The aims of the groups are to provide a secure place for parents and toddlers to meet and share experiences and ideas in an environment that is fun and informative

Down Syndrome Kerry Branch Believe in making our members as independent as possible. Being able to cook is a basic necessity and often taken for granted! Our classes teach our members the importance of nutrition, how to cook and how to buy ingredients! Our classes take place in Listowel.

We also support initiatives that raise awareness of DS and provide training and advice to professionals. We organise social and sporting events. We receive no state support and all activities and services depend on the contributions of members and the generosity of the public.”
