Festival of Minerva

Salvete Omnes!

Saturday last, the 13th of June, saw the first ever festival of Minerva celebrated on Irish soil in almost 2000 years. In the lower exhibition hall of the Crawford art gallery we gave thanks to our legion's patron goddess, Minerva. Lot's of confused public and press were present so keep an eye out for pics in the papers. This was not intended to be a public event but rather an event for our legion, but it's hard to disguise 19 Romans in the centre or Cork city.

Here's looking forward to bigger things next year ;)

19 Romans on the loose in Cork City...! yes indeed looking forward to seeing pics of that occupation...wonder what the quality of any slaves ye captured was like..do Cork ones command a higher value!? Hope ye left the exhibits etc and didnt cart them all back to Rome..
This will make up a little for slow posting of Slane ones..anyway good luck with the season
