18 August – The Rindoon Revival 2013
At the height of it’s fame in the late 13th century the Medieval town of Rindoon, in south Roscommon, was an important meeting place of diverse cultures. From 1.30 pm to 5 pm on Sunday 18th August 2013 St. John’s Parish Heritage Group are recreating this cultural exchange. Attend to witness what it was like when Rindoon held a religious or social festival and all the townsfolk, Irish and English, gathered to enjoy the day!
