The last Sunday of July is Garland Sunday - aka Lughnasa, the pagan Celtic festival of Lugh - is the traditional end of summer and the beginning of the harvest -  and there has been a celebration every year reaching well back in time. Traditional ways of celebrating have changed but come to the GAA field just off the Ballymote/Boyle road in the center of Keash after dinner for a full range of children and adult games, music, sandwiches and tea and more. Come earlier and you can take part of a run around Keshcorran!

Every year in early August the current Parish of Keash/Culfadda holds a open air mass in the Knockbrack Cemetery. Rain or shine there is always a very large gathering of locals in attendance.
