If you fancy doing something a bit different this Halloween, don’t miss Púca, a brand new festival created by Failte Ireland.
Described as ‘spectacular, fun and other-worldly’, this event plans to celebrate Ireland’s rich traditions and culture that have rightfully led it to be known as the original birthplace of Halloween.
- The walls of stunning and ancient Trim Castle and St. Laurence’s Gate in Drogheda will come alive after dark with some of the best projection artists in the world, including Seb Lee Delisle, Algorithm, Illuminos, and Ronan Devlin.
- Three festival hubs – Athboy, Drogheda and Trim –play host to Ireland’s best established and up and coming names in music including Lisa O’Neill, David Keenan, DJ KORMAC and Jerry Fish.
- The Púca Food and Craft Market in Trim will offer tasty treats and traditional handicrafts to satisfy Halloween appetites.
- The Coming of Samhain at Athboy will kick start the festival on 31st October recreating the symbolic lighting of the Samhain fires.
