The Piseógs Of Park At Midsummer
a walk in Park led by Miriam Lohan, John Elliott, and Pat Lysaght [all custodians of trees in the Secret Orchard] , June 23rd 2021
part of “At Home On The Farm,” an exhibition of paintings by Mary Burke, at Limerick City Gallery of Art, until June 27th 2021.
Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event has been CANCELLED.
The area known as Park, on the Shannon bank east of the city, has been farmed for over a thousand years. We will be looking for what remains of the market gardens and pastures, down the country lanes and meadows, past old farmhouses, magical plants, and a secret orchard. As the 23rd is St. John’s Eve, one of the most important evenings of the old Irish calendar, we will be sharing local folklore, traditions, and superstitions as we go.
Participants are invited to bring camera phones, and their own Midsummer traditions to share. Also advised to wear sensible footwear and long trousers and sleeves for walking rough country paths.
Approx. 90 minutes.
