Don’t Miss ‘Cluain Meala’ Festival in Clonmel, Fri 27 – Sun 29 August 2010
If you are at a loose end this weekend and fancy being part of a fun-packed, informative and vibrant occasion, why not pop along to the ‘Cluain Meala’ (“Honey Meadow”) festival, taking place from this Fri 27 to Sun 29 August in Clonmel town.
Clonmel has a fascinating and eventful history and this weekend promises to unlock some of its past secrets. The Cluain Meala has been running for a few years and grew out of the annual town wall tour to the thriving event it is today.
With all the activities taking place, workshops, lectures, walks, arts & crafts, food fairs and more … try to remember to keep an eye out for the medieval shop signs. These were created in summer workshops by young people from the region. Also Bernadette from the Clonmel Museum, Mike Delahunty Square, informs us that the museum is running an exhibition focusing on ‘old implements’ used in traditional farming practice. The museum is open from 10-5 on Saturday 28th and this exhibition will be running into next week also.
