I've been to the Castlecomer festival for the last two years and its been great value, the first year the workshops were free, the second year only 5 euro, (for workshops with writers like Anita Notaro, Mia Gallagher, Declan Burke) the attendence wasn't very high but nothing like a competition to raise a profile!
