2021 FESTIVAL

The Guildhall Close Up...

2021 FESTIVAL

The Seanchaí cried out after he drank from the well

I must summon the ancestors and make a new spell

“Come one come all, spirit and mortal

to Derry we go to pass through the portal”

First to appear saw Morrigan the shape shifting crow

Unleash a multitude of Banshees with eyes all aglow

Then came the Cailleach with her potions and charms

Followed by Walter stepping from his cold coat of arms

And then the armies of Ulster on the cities walls

Again the Seanchaí cried we must illuminate the night

Burn beacons bright for after darkness comes the light

As the veil between this world and the other grows thin

It’s time for the Awakening and release Samhain spirits within

 

Our famous Derry Celtic characters will be awakened once again.  Join us to celebrate Samhain from 29th – 31st October 2021.
