    The three day spectacular will take place on the picturesque Island of Inis Mor, off the coast of Galway, next month.


    The venue for the festival was announced earlier this week, in controversial circumstances, amid furious opposition from neighbouring Island, Inis Oirr, who insist that the shipwreck featured in the opening sequence of the award wining comedy series is an historic and recognisable landmark of their coastline.


    Inis Moris currently odds-on favourite to emerge triumphant.


    Thankfully, a truce was arranged between the feuding islands with the agreement to compete in a five-a-side soccer match on the final day of the festival.


    The winning side will be awarded the title of 'The Real Craggy Island' for the following 12-months.


    The organisers have hinted at the involvement of two high-profile soccer celebrities to coach the opposing sides but will not yet be drawn on their identity.


    In addition to ball-kicking, there'll be a Lovely Girls contest and voting on the best ever episode and best guest star. Graham Nortonand Brendan Grace currently head the betting for best guest.


    In conjunction with their sponsorship, Paddy Power have said that all profits from their Ted-Stock betting will be donated equally to local charitable causes nominated by all of the Aran Islands@@@@/SPAN>
