Drogheda Independent - - NEWS -

THE Boyne Val­ley Food Series has five great autumn events for you to en­joy this Oc­to­ber.

There is some­thing for ev­ery­one in the fam­ily to en­joy with har­vest walks, food fairs and even a Celtic and rock fes­ti­val to look for­ward to.

Kick­ing off the month on the 5th and 6th Oc­to­ber is Ok­to­ber­fest at The Cen­tral in Na­van, where over the week­end pun­ters can en­joy lo­cal pork prod­ucts teamed with lo­cal craft beers… Prost!

Then on the 13th Oc­to­ber gin en­thu­si­asts can ex­pe­ri­ence an af­ter­noon dis­till­ing their own gin with Lis­toke Dis­tillery, Ire­land’s only gin school, which is lo­cated in Ten­ure.

Fol­low­ing on with the Boyne Val­ley bev­er­ages, the fam­ily be­hind Cooney’s Ir­ish Cider are open­ing up their or­chards in Kilmes­san to the pub­lic for an Ap­ple Har­vest Walk on the 13th Oc­to­ber. Vis­i­tors will get to walk through the or­chards, lo­cated at the foot of the hill of Tara, with a mulled cider in hand and learn more about the or­chards and this lo­cal cider.

The Oc­to­ber bank hol­i­day week­end is well catered for with two great events to at­tend.

The in­au­gu­ral BRÚ Trim Tra­di­tional & Celtic Rock Fes­ti­val will run for four days from Fri­day 26th – Mon­day 29th Oc­to­ber. This fes­ti­val will see some of Ire­land’s best mu­si­cians come to Trim to show­case their tal­ents along­side lots of lo­cal food and great taste trails.

Then on Sun­day 28th, the hugely pop­u­lar Point to Point Food & Coun­try Fair re­turns to Dowth.

This cel­e­bra­tion of rac­ing, food and fam­ily fun will see thou­sands gather at the Old Race­course in Dowth which is part of the Brú na Bóinne, UNESCO World Her­itage Site.

Guar­an­teed to be as much fun as you can have with your wellies on!
