On Sunday, 21st August we will welcome Maurice O'Keeffe of Irish Life and Lore to our Heritage Garden next to Jack Quinn's Pub. There he will record aspects of our oral history, dealing with scythe cutting and use of hand implements, our Irish Traveler community, traditional music and kitchen crafts, haymaking and a walk and talk at our 7 Arch Bridge, which is nearing full restoration.

The restoration of our 7 Arch Bridge commenced with a PLC study in 2008 and has progressed ever since. It features a beautiful Pack Horse Bridge, which may be older the the 1660's Downs Survey, and may be the only one of its kind in Ireland. Recording our oral history will add to the legacy of knowledge for generations to come.
