The June Bank Holiday weekend in Athboy means only one thing. For the past 31 years, this bank holiday has become synonymous with the Blue Jean Country Queen Festival, which brings fun for all ages.
This year the Festival, organized by Meath Macra na Feirme, brings 22 young women from Ireland and abroad to Athboy for a weekend of good craic – or as the festival organisers say “Sound Girls Doing Mad Things”. They’ll leave on Bank Holiday Monday with great memories and friendships that will last a lifetime. While one lucky Queen will be heading home with the title of Blue Jean Country Queen, as well as €1000 in prize money from Athboy Credit Union.
