Yesterday, we had Heritage Day where the community has food, crafts, and events. It's like a farmers market mixed with a festival. We saw how to churn butter, tug o war matches, delicious treats (scones from Benny's are the best you'll ever have). The project participated by giving guided tours of the castle so people could come in and see what we have been working on. There were around 200-300 people who came out and spent the day here in Ballintubber for the event which is AWESOME! Completed not anticipated and it was great to see everyone come out and join us!
Below are some pictures of such an amazing day!
