Smokie to headline Shamrocker festival in Fintona


March 15 will see an amazing first for Fintona when internationally famous band Smokie drop in to headline the Saturday night of the Shamrocker.

The chart-toppers join a top-class line-up of entertainment at the Ecclesville Centre right throughout the weekend. Andrew Short, managing director of AJS Promotions, said, “We are delighted to have secured Smokie to headline our Saturday evening of entertainment fresh from their world tour in which they have been thrilling audiences in their own inimitable way.

“This is a real coup for us and will significantly add to our evening of entertainment at Ecclesville, which has recently undergone a massive refurbishment programme in which large external areas surrounding the arena have been concreted.”


Within the building staff have introduced hard flooring and a one way system to ensure a more luxurious environment for patrons.

Mr Short continued, “Also on the Saturday we have Brush Shiels, Whistlin’ Donkeys, All Folk’d Up and Chasin’ Hooley bringing a truly eclectic blend of music to our evening and offering something for everyone.

“Sunday sees a very welcome return for our headliner More Power to your Elbow who will be playing along with Goats Don’t Shave, The Mindbenders and Justin McGurk and his Boogie Men. All in all providing a fantastic weekend of entertainment for all.”
