This year Bealtaine Festival organisers in Longford are preparing for a double celebration - the Bealtaine Festival and The Gathering 2013. As such, oversees visitors are particularly welcome to join in the variety of events and workshops planned throughout the county during this memorable month.
In Longford, these will include an opportunity to create your own beautiful headpiece, perform your favourite song, story, dance and movement to music, share some of your favourite books and discover some of the great new reads. You can also start work on your family tree. Furthermore, you can enjoy music appreciation with local historian, Luke Baxter, or art classes and exhibitons with Longford V.E.C.
Alternatively, step back in time with a visit to the Paddy Egan Farm Museum in Kenagh. Also, Club '91 will celebrate their 21st anniversary as part of Bealtaine, while Longford Community Gardai and Longford Library will host a Tea Dance in the Longford Arms Hotel and a representative from the HSE wil give a talk at this event.
