Medieval Festival Weekend Fri 20th to Sun 22nd June 2014

Fethard Historical Society are now finalising plans for the 2014 Medieval Festival.

An ongoing Grave Slab ‘rubbing’ project by the Transition Year students of the secondary school ( with art teacher Patricia Looby) will be launched – probably on Friday evening June 20th  – and this will add greatly to our knowledge of the Grave Slabs on the floor of Holy Trinity church (built c.1200 AD)

I will conduct two Guided Tours of the medieval town on Saturday 21st,,, at 11 am and again at 2pm. More precise details closer to the date.

Sat night there will be a concert of Medieval Music by Nuada in old Holy Trinity Church , which should be a special occasion. Then Sunday there will be all the fun of the fair  from 1pm onwards , Medieval Parade at 2pm from the Tholsel to the Valley Park  and Clashawley River.
