Connolly Motor Group is proud to be sponsoring National Heritage Day at the Ballina Salmon Festival July 12th 2023!

Step back in time and immerse yourself in an interactive showcase of a market town over 100 years ago. Being the longest running community festival along the wild Atlantic way, inspired by Ballina’s jewel in its crown, the River Moy, as Ballina is officially dubbed ‘Salmon Capital of Ireland’, returns for its 59th year, this year celebrating the 300th Anniversary of Ballina during 2023!

The ethos has remained the same, it continues to celebrate all that is great about the community of Ballina and Co Mayo; Family fun, music, arts, culture and heritage, sports and the magnificent River Moy, making Ballina Salmon Festival a very special seven days to remember.
