In conjunction with Heritage Week, ‘Backs to the Wall Tours’ have organised a guided tour of the Medieval Walled Town of Fethard at 2.30pm on Saturday, August 24, meeting at the footbridge at the Valley Park.
There is no need to book, just turn up on Saturday. Fee is €5 and children go free. Contact: Colm 086 3502360 or Terry 086 3905373.This week is National Heritage Week the traditional time that Fethard Medieval Festival was held over the past few years. This year the Medieval Festival was held earlier in June to coincide with the Fethard Gathering Festival with the approval of the Heritage Council who fund the event. Unfortunately many visitors were unaware of the change and came to Fethard on Sunday last to attend the Medieval Festival. Jolly’s Café on The Square reported that at least nine people travelled from places as far away as Wexford stating the Festival was still being advertised as part of Heritage Week on some websites.
