Athboy, Co. Meath
The Púca Festival town of Athboy is an important hub of Halloween tradition, with ancient manuscripts telling us that Tlachtga (pronounced Clackda) or The Hill of Ward was a site of great Samhain gathering. Join the ‘Coming of Samhain’ celebrations at The Hill of Ward, a major ceremonial enclosure and one of the earliest sites to host Samhain, on Monday, 31st October for a spiritual and historical retelling of the original Halloween story, where the five ancient provinces of Ireland will be represented and symbolically reunited in flame.
