Heritage Day

Heritage Day – Lá Oidreachta

Wednesday July 2015

‘A windy day is no day for thatching’ – ‘Ní hé lá na gaoithe lá na scoilbe’

Heritage Day centres on displays of our cultural Heritage by showcasing  from years bygone but not forgotten! And this year we are having a selection of games for kids on Walsh Street. More info can be found here.

Heritage Day was the focus of North Mayo Gathering ’13, Western People Feb 19, 2013. Read the article here.

This year we are running the Heritage Day Gathering to bring more of our friends and family home for a fun filled day of Irish culture, craft and food. Ireland as a nation is famous for our handcrafted trades,  products, traditional food & music that is never forgotten by those living far from our shore and the Heritage Day Gathering is intended to bring closer those returning home and those who never left in a lively, fun &  festive atmosphere.

More details are to follow.

We would like to thank each and every person involved in making

Heritage Day 2014 such a great success.

Kid Events taking place on Walsh Street on Heritage Day.

Traditional street games Hop Scotch, Hoola Hoop, Skipping and Pavement Drawing and the Medieval Magician.

This is an eye-catcher. Fast, funny magic and ventriloquism performed in a flamboyant kilt and grab a seventeenth century warrior. None of the props he uses are modern, and one of the puppet characters is the last remaining wolf in Ireland.
