There was a great atmosphere in Granard last weekend as Norman People came to Granard Knights & Conquests.

The Horsemen of Éire staged re-enactments with sword-fighting both on the ground and on horseback entertaining the crowds gathered as part of National Heritage Week.

Also featured at the open day event were Wolfshead Archery demonstrations, Falconry with a golden eagle, Highland cattle and period traders including Woodcarver, Joey Burns.

Granard history came into play during the day with the story of Michael Collins and Kitty Kiernan featuring, along with Eamon Creamer’s restored Ford Model T that transported Collins.
