Noelle McAlinden, Chairman of Fermanagh Live Arts Festival paid tribute to all three Cultural Champions for their ongoing support, inspiration and commitment to The Beckett, Wilde and Friel Festivals and now Fermanagh Live Arts Festival. 
“We are indebted to Adrian Dunbar for his generosity as well as his talent, inspiring encouragement and support. To Ciaran Mc Menamin and Carlo Gebler who will be participating in this year’s Fermanagh Live Arts Festival.
“This year’s FLIVE Festival programme   promises to be a truly creative and engaging family affair, building upon the successes of previous years and the ongoing commitment, creativity and imagination of an experienced team of volunteers, artists, educators and creatives. All dedicated to ensuring this year’s programme is diverse, dynamic and all-inclusive. 
Fermanagh has much to offer, the landscape, the waterways, the history, heritage and architecture…as well as the talents and creativity of the people.”
