Meet the Warriors!

·         Transform into a Celtic Warrior, as you have your face painted and wear one of our authentic costumes.

·         Enjoy storytelling around the fire, as the bard tells the tales of the great heroes associated with the Navan Fort (Emain Macha), such as CuChulainn and the Red Branch Warriors.

·         Discover the skills required to succeed in battle – try your hand at throwing a spear and hitting the target & determine the most suitable weaponry to use, such as slings, swords, spears and shields!

·         Learn the art of ancient Celtic writing as you spell out your clan name using Ogham.

·         Find out more about daily life 2000 years ago as you learn of cooking, hunting, trade, agriculture and the gods of the time.
