Lochlannach: The Viking Irish
Viking Martial Arts Show on the Festival Field
Sunday, June 3rd: 1pm and 4pm
The Viking Irish, a group of area history enthusiasts, will set up camp on the festival grounds and recreate the world of the legendary northern seafaring people, some of whom settled thousands of years ago in parts of Ireland including Dublin, Wexford, and Cork. Although known as bold, fierce warriors, these Vikings – known in Irish as the “Lochlannach” – were also traders, merchants, farmers, and artisans. All those elements of Viking life will be on display during both days of the Festival.
