The Flame of Samhain was lit at Tlachtga to herald the New Year and bring light into the darkness. Come and experience this ancient tradition and walk in the footsteps of the druids as we process by torchlight from the Fairgreen in Athboy to the sacred Hill of Ward.

Witness the ceremony to remember and welcome those gone before and feel the light which protects us from malevolent spirits grow and spread across the country. This is where the brightness of the New Year begins – from Tlachgta these ripples of light have spread out and given us Halloween.
