Return of the Warriors –
On Sat. 4th July from 9pm, make sure you come out and line the streets of Ballina & Killaloe to welcome back the survivors of the Battle of Clontarf – the remaining Dal Cassian soldiers who have travelled from Armagh after burying their High King, Brian Ború. These warriors will be led into Ballina by the Armagh Rhymers (www.armaghrhymers.com) and will walk to the Palace of Kincora (The Green, Killaloe).
We invite you all to dress in TRADITIONAL COSTUME and assemble on the streets of both towns and in the Green to welcome back these brave soldiers. A prize will be presented for the Best Costume(s). Details of how to make simple costumes are available on our website.
If you would like to dress up and join in this pageant, please contact us by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, send us a message on Facebook or contact 086 3586293.
