Pipe Organ Festival has been the emphasis on improvisation.  The 150th anniversary concert in May, given by David Briggs, and the July and August concerts given by Cyprian Love and Columba Mc Cann in Glenstal all featured extensive improvisation.  For an insight into what improvisation actually  is click here to read a fascinating article by Cyprian Love.
