New Ross Standard - - NEWS -

A Samhain Fes­ti­val of fire takes place on the grounds of Hook Light­house from Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27, to Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 29.

On Satur­day, Sun­day and Mon­day evening from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. ‘Evenings of Fire’ based on the an­cient tra­di­tion of Samhain of ex­tin­guish­ing old and light­ing anew will take place.

Age-old tales of Samhain will be shared by ‘Druids’ around the cir­cles of fire at Hook Light­house. Fam­i­lies are in­vited to gather around the blaz­ing fire bas­kets be­neath the ever-present beam of the 800-year-old light­house to hear sto­ries of druids and an­cient Ir­ish Samhain cus­toms and her­itage. A fam­ily evening with chil­dren’s en­ter­tain­ment and Hal­loween sto­ries lies in store. These events are free of charge and no pre-book­ing is re­quired.

Dur­ing the evening ghastly lan­tern-lead Hal­loween tours only for those who like the ghoul­ish and ‘spooky’ will be on of­fer from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. for a charge. These tours are suit­able for brave adults and braver kids but are not for any one of a ner­vous dis­po­si­tion. Pre-book­ing is ad­vised and avail­able on www.hookher­itage.ie.
