I have a special Why Nenagh post to celebrate National Heritage Week. This will take place between August 17th to August 25th, 2013. As part of the national celebrations there are a number of events to take place in Nenagh town, so why not click on the brochure above to view the very busy schedule that will take place in Nenagh town and why it could be a very good idea to travel to Nenagh town as a visitor, tourist or just site-seeing in one of Ireland’s original heritage towns.
TIME TRAVELLING IN NENAGH?
Visit Nenagh Castle on Saturday 24th August and you will be in for a surprise. You may think you have travelled back in time to when the castle was built for in the grounds surrounding it will be a Mediaeval Fair. Stalls and booths will be displaying crafts and weaponry of the time, and there will be an opportunity to witness first hand real 13th Century combat!
In contrast in the adjacent church grounds at the same time there is the Peoples’ Picnic where the Nenagh Mint Jazz Band, Ebony, and special guest Paddy Cole will be performing and entertainment for younger visitors will be provided in the form of Bouncy Castles and face painting.
So whether you prefer a real castle or a bouncy one, come along to Nenagh between 11.00 and 5.00 on Saturday 24th August and you will be in for a rare treat.
Admission is free, mediaeval dress optional!
