A date for EVERYONE'S diary!!
Strokestown Show 2019 takes place on the 7th & 8th September 2019 in the grounds of Strokestown Park House.
The Táin March was established in 2011 as a community walking festival to celebrate and promote the epic tale of the Cattle Raid of Cooley.
The March itself is the physical act of walking from Rathcroghan site (where Queen Medb began her quest for the Brown Bull of Cooley) and ends in Cooley in County Louth, on the June Bank Holiday. This takes place over three weekends and 12 walking days in total. Through fields, over mountains and wading through streams the marchers follow Queen Medb’s route in pursuit of the Brown Bull. At key towns and villages the local community organises events, receptions and parades to welcome the Marchers.
The March is due to hit Strokestown on Friday 17th May 2019 and a series of events are being planned by Strokestown Town Team ... check the Strokestown Facebook page for updates!!
