Limerick, Ireland | 1st - 5th December 2021

I.NY would like to acknowledge the support of all festival partners, without whom it would not be possible to conceive, prepare and stage The I.NY Festival. We would also like to warmly welcome new festival partners in 2019; The Irish Times and New York’s Irish Arts Center.

The partnership between I.NY and The Irish Times allows a communication between I.NY and a wide Irish diaspora through the Irish Times Irish Abroad initiative. The partnership also allows I.NY to welcome Irish Times journalists Una Mullally, Tanya Sweeney and Hugh Linehan to host and moderate I.NY events, while the I.NY artists involved in these events will feature in Irish Times editorial, digital content and podcasts.

The I.NY Festival 2019 is particularly excited to welcome the first partnership between I.NY and New York’s Irish Arts Center. The teams at I.NY and the IAC have been in conversation for some time – getting to understand each other’s work, ambitions and intentions. The partnership also allows us to explore where it was possible to come together in the shared objectives of projecting a dynamic image of Ireland and Irish America for the 21st century, building community with artists and audiences, and strengthening cross-cultural partnerships.

With both the Irish Arts Center and The I.NY Project anchored in the story of the Irish in New York, and the music, dance, theatre, film, literature and conversation that is inspired by that story, the first step was of course to present live events together celebrating those stories and the people at the heart of them. I.NY/ IAC will do that within the 2019 festival programme, presenting four shows together featuring renowned performers, promoters, broadcasters and storytellers such as Martin Hayes, Kevin Barry, Brenda Breathnach, Aoife NicCanna, John Kelly and more.

We’d also like to thank the many sponsors who make the I.NY Festival possible, particularly Fáilte Ireland, Limerick City & County Council, Shannon Heritage and the University of Limerick, along with our local hotel and media partners, the many people who’ve given their time, thought and effort to developing I.NY, and we look forward to continuing this work to develop The I.NY Project into 2020.
