About the event

Join us as Brian guides us to explore the fields and ditches of his townland area and  introduces us to the wonderful world of wild edibles and simple but powerful folk medicinals.

It’s important to bring the wild foods to life by not just talking about them, but by tasting them. Brian will carry a few nibbles and maybe drinks of lovingly prepared treats to share throughout the walk, small tastes on the palate to light your imagination as to what is possible with natures gifts.  

After lunch (please provide your own packed lunch) we will visit the  Neolitihic sites at Clontigora, Ballymacdermot & Ballykeel, Joanne Callan will guide the group througn some ancestral and land healing meditations.
