Sunday: Guided Archaeological Tour

Finishing off #cong16 will be a bus tour of some fascinating archaeological sites in the Cong area.  The tour will be led by a George who will explain the significance of the sites and the rich story telling behind them.

Visiting the sites of the 5000 year old Battle of Moytura, your guide George will show and tell stories on Ballymacgibbon Cairn, the Glebe Stone Circles and the last stronghold of the Fir Bolg tribe Lisheenard. George is going to try and get as many sites in as possible so sturdy clothing, boots and rainwear is advisable. Look forward to showing you the deeper history of Cong and the Battle of Moytura.

Currently this event is limited to 14 people with the possiblity to expand.

Below is a short drone video of two of the sites.
