What's On

Sunrise with Patrick – Ritual and Renewal
Navan Centre & Fort
028 3752 9644

What made Emain Macha so special to the ancient people of Ulster? Why was this site so steeped in history and wonder that it drew St Patrick to the area to build his first church? 

Celebrate the first light of St Patrick’s morning with St Patrick himself and the ancient people of Ulster. 
Through the first rays of the morning sun cast an eye back to what life and faith may have been like before the arrival of St. Patrick and with our patron saint envisage the new future that Christianity had in store for our land. And afterwards, have breakfast with us, to the sound of live music.
