Anticipation is mounting ahead of next weekend’s ‘To Crown a King’ celebration, when Cashel hosts the Brian Ború Millennium Festival !

Sunday will see a community pageant to re-enact the Coronation of Brian Ború in Cashel of the Kings! This event has been developed as a substantial tourism draw for the town, and it has been marketed extensively via local and national campaigns. The Cashel Organisers are expecting a more modest turn out than the 40,000 who attended the Clontarf celebrations last weekend, but so far almost 300 people have signed up to participate in the Pageant. However, if the townspeople turn up to view in numbers, which they have done for St. Patrick’s Day Parades and the Cannonball Run last year then, there will be “a numbers issue” to solve. The Committee have been advised that health and safety constraints on the Rock of Cashel mean that there will be restricted access to the Rock of Cashel to a maximum of 500 people.
