The cowboys and heroes festival takes place in Drumcoura every year.

A local festival says they're struggling to provide accommodation for attendees.

The cowboys and heroes festival takes place in Drumcoura every year and according to the organisers, normally has an extensive list of accommodation

However, Simon Power from the Irish Association of Festivals and Events revealed that the event now has no accommodation other than camping available.

Speaking on the Joe Finnegan show, he says that the lack of places is having an effect on ticket sales

'This is the first year that we really had this problem am we always had the accommodation lists as long as our arm and generally wouldn't fill up until April but there is nothing on the website that is totally exhausted at this stage and we are getting enquiries every day for people who won't buy tickets until they can get accommodation.

We do have camping and caravans spaces but I understand that is not for everyone as some people want more comfort so we are down to the situation where are not buying tickets because they simply cannot get accommodation.'
