Sarajevo Irish Festival, with a rich cultural and entertaining programme is running around St. Patrick's Day.
Irish Bosnian community, as well as some fellow Celts, are all working on pulling off long days of culture, ceol, craic agus caint (music, fun and chat) with more guests, more sponsors and more locations.
Organizers of this Festival said that 2016 marked the 100th anniversary of the Easter Rising in Ireland, an event which was seminal in our modern history. This was a great opportunity to begin with a new tradition of organising this festival in Sarajevo, every year around the St. Patrick's Day.
Time, as they say, heals all wounds, giving us the opportunity now to hark back but look forward and celebrate together our shared enjoyment of culture.
