Trim Hay Making Festival

31st May; 14th to 16th June 2013

Established in 1968 as a rural based community development group, Scurlogstown Olympiad has organised and hosted the Trim Haymaking Festival annually to promote the rural way of life and revive traditional skills, activities and pastimes.  The Olympiad has worked tirelessly to promote the Irish language, song, dance, music and pageantry as a means of preserving a way of life fast vanishing from our every-day lives. They have produced numerous pageants, fairs and aeriochts over the years on the streets of Trim including the much heralded Evictions of Rathcore; Songs by the River; and the Battle of Tara. All these pageants attracted audiences in their thousands. The Hay Making Festival in June has developed into Ireland’s only National Haymaking festival and each year includes a pageant set on the banks of the River Boyne.
