Everyone is welcome to Louth’s Cruinniú na nÓg, a free family day out celebrating young people and children. Combining music, storytelling, visual arts, craft and heritage, as well as a few surprises. The event will showcase some of the best of Louth’s cultural gems in the beautiful setting of Mellifont Abbey, the first Cistercian monastery in Ireland. Atmospheric in their own right, the abbey’s ruins will play host to a wide variety of performers and artists, coming together to celebrate and encourage children and young people’s participation in culture and creativity. There will be treasure trails, storytellers and local craftspeople making and selling their Louth-inspired wares. The day will also see the return of Draw on LOUTH, facilitated by local artists, where children will get an opportunity to put their mark on LOUTH!
