The Building Of An Iron Age Dwelling
From April 1st to 11th an EU-sponsored group of craftspeople from across Europe will be learning traditional Irish skills at Brigit’s Garden, Co. Galway, by building an Iron Age dwelling. This will be like a Crannóg but on land.
Visitors are welcome to come and watch as they make walls of hazel wattle and a roof of ash poles. The roof will be thatched later through June.
