Annual Bilberry Walk in July

Join Creative Ardagh in conjunction with Cruthú Arts Festival and funded by Creative Ireland – Longford, on Sunday 28th July for the Annual Bilberry Walk.
As usual we will be meeting at 11am at the GAA pitch with suitable attire for the weather of the day. This year is a year of great celebration as we will no longer be wading through the mud but using the newly created walk thanks to Longford Tourism.
Brendan Farrell of Ardagh Village Landscapes, our traditional “leader of the walk” will start with a tour of his wonderful garden and advise us on biodiversity, then we will follow him over the hill.
Following that, wander on into Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre where Ann and Annette will entertain you with their Scéalta Beo storytelling of local legends. Our Viking friends from the Jofur Drengir re-enactment group will be coming to entertain us and Adel Coleman, Archaeologist, will give us a lecture to update us on the developments regarding the dig at The Back of The Hill.
Light Refreshments will be provided in Ardagh Heritage and Creativity Centre.
