HISTORY HAS NEVER BEEN SO MUCH FUN!
THE 5TH ANNUAL YOUGHAL MEDIEVAL FESTIVAL to be held at St. Mary’s Medieval College Gardens, is expected to draw its biggest-ever attendance this year on Sunday 21st August. Last year over 7,000 visitors flocked through the gates at the one-day Festival, already the largest free event of its kind in Ireland. The event marks ‘The Irish Walled Town’s Network’ annual day of celebrations, and officially kicks off National Heritage Week.
Bringing history to life and allowing people to experience it first hand is the secret of the event Festival Organiser, Catherine Desmond believes. “The gardens are looking spectacular at the moment and the 13th century town walls provide just a magical backdrop for this celebration of Youghal’s medieval heritage. We are thrilled to once again be in a position to host this event; now in its fifth year and provide free family entertainment. This year we really do have something for everyone to enjoy.” said Catherine.
Throughout the day, the magnificent 13th Century Town Walls will resound with battle cries. Returning for their third year at the event, are ‘The Freelance Knights of Redemption’, whose combat displays are world renowned, as they are derived from genuine medieval martial arts. The group will also have a large display of weapons and armour including examples of replicas showing weaponry from the Bronze Age through to the last legally worn sword; The Georgian Small Sword.
If you have ever wondered how hogs roasted on open fires might taste, here’s a chance to discover as Cork based group ‘TUATH DE BARRA’ carry out a medieval themed cookery display of the ‘lamb on the spit’. Archery displays throughout the day are sure to capture the attention of audiences as the famous ‘bow and arrow’ shows one of the many defence systems used in medieval times. Learn how to make your own Celtic coins and find out about the shift from bartering goods to payment by coins, all at the Medieval Quarter.
New for kids this year is ‘Beatz’; Ireland’s latest percussion craze, which is high energy, mega-fun drumming workshops. Its’ fun all the way with face-painting, balloon making with Victor, and a maze of giant games such as ‘snakes and ladders’, and ‘connect four’ to take part in. If all that wasn’t enough, kids can unleash their creative talents by taking part in our interactive arts & crafts workshop where they can make their very own medieval themed hats, castles and shields.
‘Maid Marion’s Food & Craft Fair’ will once again feature a range of top quality food and crafts from throughout locality and the county.
