Event Description

The 2nd annual 2013 History Festival of Ireland will take place on 15 and 16 June at Duckett's Grove, Rainstown, Co Carlow. A full weekend of lectures, debates, exhibits and performances is promised, all set against the romantic ruins of this magnificent Gothic Revival castle.

In keeping with the theme of 2013 and The Gathering, much of the focus of this year's festival will be on Ireland’s international relationships over centuries past, and the history of the Irish abroad.

There’s still room for any overseas Irish historical interest groups to get involved, if you have an idea for a suitable presentation or performance. Contact the History Festival team via the event'sFacebook page.
