Dromahair Demons’ Festival Committee was established in 2008 to put in place a festival for Dromahair Village and surrounding areas. The ‘demons’ was taken from the origins of the name, Droim dhá Thiar, meaning The Ridge of Two Demons. The aim of the festival is to celebrate the historical, mythical, biodiversity and heritage elements of Dromahair, and to encourage tourism, community participation and cohesion, and the expansion of the local economy.

The Dromahair Demons’ committee received funding from the Rural Development Programme (LEADER) to develop a distinct identify for the festival through the design of a logo and website. The festival aims to increase community participation by delivering creative and educational parade workshops to children, youth, women, older people and community / voluntary groups in Dromahair. It also demonstrates Dromahair's history, myth, biodiversity and heritage through the parade with a display of music, sound, art, drama and mobile floats. The funding also acted as a catalyst to increase tourism at local, regional, national level and to attract Dromahair’s diaspora and new audiences.
