Speaking at the launch of the Westport Airshow Tom Gilligan, Directors of Services at Mayo County Council said, “The Westport Airshow is one the main events of the Westport’s 250th anniversary celebrations and indeed will be one of the biggest events to take place on Wild Atlantic Way this year”.
As well as aerobatics, there will be family entertainment including a fun fair along the quays, sample the delights from our artisan food and craft markets and there’s even Helicopter pleasure flights from the iconic Westport House.
“There is something for everyone from the activities in the sky to all the fun of the fair on the ground. Westport really is the place to be on May 14th. We’re really looking forward to welcoming the many visitors to the town to help celebrate our birthday”, said Councillor Christy Hyland, Chairman of the Westport250 Committee.
