Traditional Harvest Day at Bunratty Folk Park
30 September 2012
Harvest traditions from over 100 years ago will be brought to life at the Bunratty Folk Park Traditional Harvest Day. Visitors to the Folk Park on Harvest Sunday will enjoy a flavour of rural Irish life. One of the highlights of the day will be the vintage threshing machine in the haggard at the Folk Park. Visitors can watch the crew of farmers at work, demonstrating the art of threshing, as they separate the grain from the sheaves. The Bean a Ti's will demonstrate the art of bread baking and butter making. The village school master will be greeting children and looking for them to hand over their customary sod of turf for the tiny school room fire! Other activities on the day include traditional Irish music and dancing with the Strawboys, sheaf throwing, and storytelling by the resident seanachai.
