Lunasa at the Fort of the Fairies

Lúnasa ar Lios na Bruíne

Celebrate Lúnasa at the Lios na Bruíne Ráth with Wildkind, Turas & Yallaa. 

Bringing Irish & Arab culture together to celebrate the harvest through language, art, song, dance & food. Connections have been made between these cultures, from songs to sails, and we will share these with you at this very special event. On the way, our Turas guide will weave together the history, folklore and Irish language of Castlereagh.

Music from Irish language choir, Grúpa Ceoil Turas, Aodán ‘Jaff’ Mac Séafraidh, Jackie Jeffers, Robbie Boake & Arabic singer Shahd, poetry & proverbs in Irish & Arabic, artwork from Wildkind, a traditional Palestinian harvest dance performed by the Yallaa Dabka Dance Group and a tasty harvest table for you to sample.

This Wildkind initiative aims to bring people together in nature to nurture our sense of place – for all those growing on this shared island, those who have been displaced and seek refuge and for our young digital natives often disconnected from the wilds around us.
