Dundalk Stadium hosted their ‘Louth Land of Legends’ event in conjunction with The Gathering 2013, last weekend and it was a great success.
People from far and wide came together to experience the great atmosphere displayed by every aspect of the event. The mini museum proved very popular with attendees as they took a step back into the 1800s with antiques from old age irons to the first television.
There were also five actresses who demonstrated spinning and butter churning and really brought the mini museum to life. An Táin March were present with Louth’s famous Irish Wolf Hound Dougall, to mingle with the crowd prior to their event from June 6-9 which will recreate the march of Queen Maeve. Fingal living history society demonstrated their passion for the history of Ireland as they interacted with the crowd, teaching children of the skills of old age Ireland.
There was also a pitched battle re-enactment, which proved very popular with onlookers. Traditional Irish music by Comhaltas entertained the crowd throughout the evening and Celtic Dance Fusion put on a great show and even got the Louth roses up for a dance and a bit of craic. DkITs fourth year Public Relations students worked alongside the stadium creating this event to promote County Louth in a positive light and attracted an abundance of visitors from far and wide to join in on the celebrations.
A great night was had by all who all attended.
