Ferns Development Association (FDA)

Ferns Development Association is a voluntary group which has been very active over the past number of years.

The Association's biggest annual event is 'An Evening at Ferns Castle'. The event is organised to highlight Ferns as a tourism destination and to raise awareness of the variety of heritage features located in the village. Pictured right in the grounds of Ferns Castle with Bui Bolg knights were (on left) Lucy Medlicott, Bui Bolg and Tara Kerry, Failte Ireland who spoke at the event.
This year it will become a big part of our 'Ferns Gathering' weekend on June 7th to 9th. Visit our Gathering page for more information.
