Due to our marvellous community support and the wonderful efforts of committee and sponsors and helpers, Thoor Ballylee has opened for Yeats2015. On W.B.Yeats’s 150th birthday, Saturday 13th June 2015, over 800 visitors and well-wishers made their way to the tower for a special opening event hosted by the Yeats Thoor Ballylee Society, with Senator Fidelma Healy Eames, founding sponsor Joseph Hassett, and Minister Jimmy Deenihan.
The Yeats Thoor Ballylee Society thanks all our supporters, visitors, and donors.
Without your help this event, and this wonderful reopening, would not be happening.

One thought on “Yeats’s Birthday at Thoor Ballylee”
Congratulations to all involved in the reopening of the tower. It is wonderful to see new life being breathed into this wonderful historic building. Hopefully it reminds us all of the rich cultural heritage we have here in South Galway.
