  • by Milmoe Updated Oct 20, 2005

    Celebrated the last Sunday of July. It was originally a pagan festival, to the God Lugh (Festival of Lughnasa). Now celebrated in very few locations in Ireland, with Keash possibly being the only place in Sligo. It is also at this time, when people tend to climb Croagh Patrick in their bare feet. Time was too, when people used to climb Keash Hill. However the day is now more commonly celebrated on the Eastern Harps football field (Fr. Kevin Brehony Memorial Park).

    It's a day out for all the family, with fun, frolics and usually a football match held on the day, followed by a dance (not a ceili as such) in the local hall (The White Hall) beside the parish church (St Kevins).
