Over the past two decades, Ireland has become a destination for some of the best music festivals in Europe – Electric Picnic, Longitude and Oxegen have introduced a whole generation to the music festival experience. Now country music fans are saddling up for their own festival alternative! Held in the heart of County Leitrim, Cowboys and Heroes is a weekend of cowboys, horses, country music stars and mud! A little corner of the American frontier in the north west of Ireland. Organiser Simon Power saw the opportunity for a festival aimed at the country music fan, and the family ranch at Drumcoura outside Ballinamore seemed like the ideal location. With a huge amount of money invested, Simon is under pressure to pull in the country music loving public in their droves… he is also praying for sunshine!
