                      The Battle of Clontarf Festival
                             April 19/20/21 - 2014

                     
The Battle of Clontarf is an event of major nationalist importance in the Irish historical narrative. Lamentably, this seminal moment in our national consciousness has been allowed to drift pass without due recognition for far too long. We propose to draw together our efforts and ambitions in order to somewhat correct that imbalance.

It is proposed to stage the event over a three day period, starting on Sat  April 19/20/21st 2014. This festival aims to provide both historical accuracy that shows respect for a serious occasion, yet combined with a festival atmosphere to produce a world class event..
