LAUGH OUT LOUTH | County hosts its first ever Comedy Festival

Laugh Out Louth (LOL) is Louth’s first comedy festival, created to raise awareness of mental health issues in our community (especially male mental health) through comedy.

Even though it is only its first year, it is already featuring fantastic talent like:

  • Deirdre O’Kane
  • Eleanor Tiernan
  • Joe Rooney
  • Eric Lalor
  • Collum McDonnell
  • Emma Doran

And many, many more.

All profits are in aid of the Samaritans.

Join us in venues across Louth the weekend of the 13th-15th of October for a good laugh for a good cause, where our acts will help dispel the stigma around (male) mental health through comedy.

The D Hotel have very kindly offered a discounted rate on rooms in the hotel over the weekend to anyone that is visiting from outside the area for the festival (€95 B&B for Friday & Saturday & €59 B&B for Sunday night – email for LOL reservations).

The festival is a fledgling event this year and already we are gathering great momentum.

Next year already stands to be bigger and better and we hope we can count on your support for this good cause.

Find out more about the many different events happening over the weekend below.
