The Hill of Ward (Tlachtga) was a major ceremonial enclosure and one of the earliest sites to host Samhain. The place from which the light of the new year first emanates. The origin of all Irish culture ripples out from earthen mounds at Tlachtga and spreads out across the world.

You’re invited to continue the ritual of Samhain at the ancient hill and join us for a historical and spiritual procession in the shadow of this heritage site.

Assemble at 5pm at Fair Green and process to Hill of Ward.
