Everything is getting back to ‘Norman’ this summer and the Knights and Conquests exhibition in Granard reopens to the public on Saturday, June 5 with a brand new ‘Norman Adventure Tour’.

Step back in time and find out if you were a Gael or a Norman and then suffer the consequences.

Summon your inner warrior and gain the knowledge of knights as you get up close and personal with Norman weaponry and armour.

Walk in the footsteps of great leaders, conquerors and rebels as the tour moves from invader times to revolutionary times.

The experience ends with the poignant love story of Granard native Kitty Kiernan and General Michael Collins.
