Timahoe Heritage Festival.
June 3rd & 4th 2023.
Our event is all about sharing the story of a village in Co. Laois, that is steeped in centuries of history; from monks, monasteries and Vikings, to the famine, the War of Independence and beyond.
The Annals of the Four Masters, records that in 919, a monastic settlement at Timahoe, Co. Laois, was raided by the Vikings. On June 3rd & 4th, 2023, we are remembering these events, along with many other aspects of our past. Highlighting our history and heritage in a fun, interactive, & family friendly festival, is so important to us. With Heritage Runs, Heritage Talks, Funfair, Food & Craft Fair, Fancy Dress, Free Childrens Workshops, a Reenactment Viking Village, Archery Range, displays in Basket Making, Beekeeping, Weaving, Pottery, Medieval Cooking, Viking Weaponry, we really can say, ’there is something for everyone, at Timahoe Heritage Festival 2023!’
