28th July to 29th July 2013
Celebrate Lughnasa with a re-enactment of the Midir and Etain legend celebrating the local sidhe Midir who hails from Brí Leith Hill (which is known locally as a mountain!). Enjoy the family art workshop painting the legend. Help hunt for fairies in the woods and lots more magical family fun on Saturday 28 July with Creative Ardagh at Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre which is off the N4 between Edgeworthstown and Longford and Ballymahon, in the heart of Ireland.
On Sunday morning take a walk up Brí Leith where traditionally bilberries were picked for the High King to enjoy at Lughnasa and have a leisurely tea/coffee and scone in the centre afterwards with relaxed chat.
