Lughnasa Games FAQ
What are the Health and Safety guidelines?
While all activities we have organised for the Lughnasa Games are sports, they can be seriously dangerous if proper caution and basic safety rules are ignored. All props including swords, spears, axes, bows and arrows, sharp knives require responsible use and due care to others. Both Niamh and Con have first aid skills and a full first aid kit is available – please report any injuries however small for cleaning and dressing.
Can we camp at Rath Niamh?
We provide six medieval tents for people who intend sleeping in the Rath. People may bring and pitch their own tents in the field just below the Rath. You must bring your own bedding and remember a blanket is also a cloak…
Will there be food?
We provide hot food cooked in cauldrons over a log fire – breakfast, lunch and dinner. We source our food from local organic farmers when possible. Please indicate at time of booking if you have any special dietary requirements. People may cook their own food on camping gas etc. Everyone will bring his or her own spoon, knife, fork and bowl. Everyone pitches in and helps out when it is needed. All rubbish leaves with its owner.
What will I wear?
Dress for comfort and all weathers. We dress in Irish Medieval costume, i.e. a leine, over dress, tunic and trousers and a cloak. You are welcome to dress up in the spirit of the weekend...think Irish, Celtic, medieval...............there will be no authenticity officer at the door..fun and craic is our plan for the weekend.
What are the toilet facilities?
We have a toilet and wash hand basin in a mobile home for common use and toilet, wash hand basin and shower in our home when needed. Everyone will bring his or her own towel etc but we will provide plenty of soft paper.
What are the parking facilities?
There is plenty of parking.
Can I film the event?
Some or the entire event may be filmed. This would be used for promoting future events and for all participants to enjoy again and again. Anyone taking photographs and / or video is asked to give us copies.
What if I dont want to camp?
There are some B&Bs nearby, try these guys out!
