Cashel Town Walls Event August 22nd

Sean Laffey here from the Cashel Heritage Trust Ltd

Can I tell you about the Cashel Town Walls Day which will be held on Sunday August 22nd?

We are at the booking stage now and are sorting out elements for the day, we are now seeking participants for the event; subject to the usual insurance conditions.

Would you know if anyone of the members of Living who would like to take part in this event?

This event is funded by the Heritage Council (as part of their Irish Walled Towns Initiative) and Tipperary County Council. The event is free to the public, therefore we are only able to offer a fee (where applicable) and we cannot do deals based on gate receipts, brief details of the day are available at

There are a number of elements to this event:

Medieval and Heritage displays - the town walls date to the mid 14th century and were in use into the 18th century, we would like displays to be period relevant.

Period specific Craft displays, ideally with performance and certainly hands on for the public.

Craft and Farmers Market - in historic Hogan Square Cashel

Biodiversity Displays, 2010 is the UN Year of Biodiversity and the Town Walls Day will showcase Biodiversity as a major theme in this year's festival. We already have a mobile farm and a number of wildlife activities arranged for the day.

Patrons Concert at St.John's Cathedral , the festival closes with a concert in the historic St. John's Cathedral which is built within the town walls. This is a free"thank you" event for patrons and participants, food will be provided but no bar, although you are welcome to bring a bottle.

Please fell free to pass this message on to anyone else you might know who would be interested in taking part.

You can email me back at

or phone on 06262685

All the best

Sean, I wish you well with you event. You may need to be flexible in terms of what you want as heritage week gets busy (to put it mildly) and a lot of people are booked up already.

It is a great location though...

Hi Sean,

It's a great location all right, not to mention it's "Roman" connections - Castellum ;) . Actually apart from Roman finds on the rock itself, the area is relativey rich. Other finds have been made at New Inn, Golden and Balline isn't too far away.
