The lighting of the Bealtaine Fire on the Hill of Uisneach is one of Ireland’s oldest traditions. In ancient times, a great assembly would gather on the Hill to witness the fire being lit by the High King of Ireland. 
The Bealtaine Fire is traditionally seen as marking the arrival of Summer in Ireland. In recent years, this tradition has been revived to become one of the key events in the Irish cultural calendar and a great family and community event.

The day will be action-packed with music, art installations, craft & traditional workshops, stalls, talks and demonstrations, games for children, yoga, healing & mindfulness sessions amongst many other offerings and the evening culminating as the sun sets, with the lighting of the Great Bealtaine Fire !
