On December 26th each year Ireland celebrates the Day of the Wren and this year, in Newtowncashel, County Longford, the old tradition of 'Hunting the Wren' will be revitalised with a parade and festival. There will be a County Longford Parade on the day in the south Longford village. It is also hoped that there will be junior and senior competitions with groups from around the county participating on the day.
Face-painting and general festivities will be offered to competitors and visitors alike - all welcome!
