“It is great that Council has partnered with Ulsterbus for Coleraine Goes Country to attract visitors to use public transport and enjoy what the town has to offer, especially at such a low cost to travel.

“With over 30 acts and locations during the music festival which also includes Downtown Country Radio on Thursday 24th and the legendary Susan McCann on Saturday 26th, the event is all free for everyone to enjoy!

This is a great opportunity for partnerships to be developed such as this and I thank Ulsterbus for coming on board to support the event.”
