Fes­ti­val fire­works clar­i­fi­ca­tion

Wexford People - - NEWS -

WEX­FORD Fes­ti­val Opera has asked us to point out that in an ar­ti­cle on the fire­works dis­play pub­lished in last week’s edi­tion, the fol­low­ing state­ment was in­cor­rectly at­trib­uted to a spokesper­son for Wex­ford Fes­ti­val Opera. It was in­stead is­sued by Mark Dunne, the man­ager of CCS Events, the Water­ford-based com­pany en­gaged by the Fes­ti­val to man­age this year’s fire­works dis­play:

‘Num­bers were ef­fected due to the later tim­ings of the event and also due to the date change due to the ex­treme weather con­di­tions (or­ange weather warn­ings on gales and rain). A de­ci­sion was made on the night not to re­strict the de­fined area to tick­ets due to lower num­bers at­tend­ing the event. Over­all, the event ran well.’

We are happy to cor­rect the er­ror.
