It will be a weekend of heritage, community, song and visits to some of the McGrath Castles, in which was one of the McGrath strongholds. The event will be held in the beautiful seaside town of Dungarvan on Ireland’s south coast, which has lots to offer any visitor, from great restaurants, safe beaches, and friendly people. It has also the bonus of been close to an Irish speaking area, which help ensure that good traditional music will be available throughout the weekend.

Visitors will have the opportunity to visit the world famous Waterford Crystal centre which is less than 40 minutes from the town.

The event will start on the evening of Thursday June 13th and continue till Sunday 16th. Saturday will be the main day with talks, and social evening. Exact time table has to be finalised but it’s planned to give visitors a sample of what’s good about Ireland.
