Festival organiser Noreen Meehan said: "We are incredibly pleased with how the festival went this year -around 4,500 visitors came out to experience another very successful festival.

"The weather was kind to us and our new additions to the event- the tasting tent, the performing arts circle and the Alleycats cocktail bar- were a roaring success.

"The Triangle venues were rocking and plans are already being made to grow the festival for next year."
