Join Mohill Historical Society and friends and traditional singer Fionnuala Maxwell who, with the historical society will guide you on a walk through the town to discover its history from the perspective of music, song, poetry and stories.

You can expect an engaging tour where you will be regaled by various singers, musicians, story-tellers, characters and local history experts.

This tour will start at Mohill library at 7pm Monday 14th AugusT and we will finish back at the library where there will be music and refreshments.

Please be aware that this is mostly an outdoor event and may prove difficult for those with mobility issues but the closing session in the library is accessible to all.
