The 2015 Koroit Irish Festival was one of the most successful in the history of our great event.

An estimated 3000 locals and visitors rolled into Koroit for the weekend  to enjoy all the fun of the festival.

It all started on the Friday night with a huge crowd at our variety night at the Koroit Theatre.

On the Saturday early rain cleared for a sunny autumn day  with great performances happening everywhere you looked.

Mike Brady, Damien Leith, Maria Forde and Oh Pep! were among a host of high quality acts on show.

Add to that the  Australian Danny Boy Championships, spud picking and peeling, a massive street procession, wonderful street entertainment and food and stalls for all tastes and it was a day to remember.

That night the towns hotels and restaurants were packed with happy revelers while a group of passionate music lovers played late into the night at the festival slow session .

On the Sunday the Koroit Irish Festival Mass was again hugely popular and following that was the Melbourne Shamocks vs The Sinn Fein Ladies in a Camogie game at Victoria Park.

What a weekend it was!
