The first of a series of events to celebrate Moycullen’s heritage will be held on Sunday.
Walter McDonagh, a member of the Moycullen Historical Society, will lead the party for a seven-kilometre walk and talk from Moycullen village to Moycullen Castle and Sean Relig, Home Farm.
McDonagh will give a brief history of Moycullen at An Fuarán before leading participants around the loop to Moycullen Castle and An Sean Reilig (which is an adjunct to the castle ), pointing out places and sites of interest along the way.
Moycullen Castle is the birth place of Roderic O’Flaherty, 17th century historian, antiquarian, author and scholar, and this is one of four events that will precede the society’s Year of O’Flaherty Festival.
The event will start at 11am at An Fuarán and entry is free.
