The Vikings are coming!

June 29th, 2024 | Posted by arlenewhite in Arts | Crafts | Entertainment | Family | Fun | Heritage | History | Performance | Youth

From 5th – 7th July, over 60 Vikings are going to descend on the twin-towns of Killaloe & Ballina, the birthplace of Ireland’s Greatest High King, Brian Ború.

We are delighted to welcome Lakes Viking to Killaloe-Ballina, and we hope you will come along to their village in Cathedral Quay on Saturday 6th & Sunday 7th July. They will also bring along their 40 foot replica Viking ship and are offering people the opportunity to get on board.

Enjoy chatting with our visitors and experience a range of exhibits including; a replica of a Viking Sword found in Lough Derg; Tablet Weaving, Needlework, Weapons and Armor,  Weapons, Leatherwork, Birds of Prey, Runes, Toys and Jewelry, Face-painting,  Storytelling, Carving, Coins, Music, and more…….

Come along about 2pm to watch some battle re-enactments.

We are also hoping that some local children will come along and “battle the Vikings” to make sure they don’t take over our twin towns! (Approx 3:30pm & 4:30pm)
