Sunday 30th October 2022

Starting at 2pm

Hook Tourism are delighted to announce that the 2nd Baginbun Norman festival will be held in Baginbun, Fethard on Sunday October 30th.

‘At the creek of Baginbun, Ireland was lost and won’ is well remembered here in Wexford. It refers to the Normans’ victory over the local forces who fought them on their arrival in Baginbun in 1170. Arguably, one of the most significant events in Irish history.

Myles Courtney, Co-Founder New Ross Street Focus will be giving a talk.

There is an action packed schedule which will also include a Norman Re-enactment group, Dunbrody Archery display, Medieval games and Music. Lunch will also be served.

This is a great event for the locals of the area, local historical societies and heritage groups and families of Norman heritage, plus the curious amongst you…
