Féile an Phobail August 2014


So after a couple of long but enjoyable 11 days working at Féile an Phobail the Island Events team is looking forward to a few days rest. By providing the crowd management and event security services Island Events played a key role in the continuing success story of Féile an Phobail, Europe’s largest community festival.

Island Events put a strong and experienced management team in place to oversee the security of the 5000 capacity marquee, which saw the likes of Kaiser Chiefs, Boyzone and Jason Manford among others play to sold out audiences every night .The rapid growth of Féile an Phobail over recent years brings with it several new challenges which the Island Events team helped to overcome. This involved meticulous planning and attention to detail in order to execute the entire security operation.

Each night had a different audience profile as artists ranged from traditional Irish, dance and pop music right through to comedians. However, Island Events staff helped to create a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone.

This was achieved in part by developing good working relationships with the local community, council and police on crime reduction measures, working with the event organisers and above all being polite, courteous and friendly when dealing with the public

Can’t wait for 2015!!!
