The Galway Cartoon Festival is a wholly voluntary project. On goodwill alone we have grown, seven years, from a single exhibition to a week-long schedule of event in venues across the city, with famous guests from around the world and many forms of public participation. We are the only cartoon event in Ireland with a completely global outlook, and yet also the only one to promote and highlight cartooning in the Irish language.

The Festival’s Supporters

The cartoon festival owes its continuing existence to several generous sponsors – see all their names at the foot of the page. Please imbibe in their hostelries, sleep in their rooms, visit their countries etc! 

We’re still looking for help of all kinds – sponsors, advertisers, volunteers. If you’d like to help in any way, please get in touch.
