Mulranny Stone Wall Festival

The Mulranny Stone Wall Festival celebrates Irelands and Mulranny’s stone wall heritage. The festival includes a two day workshop in the Art of Dry Stone Wall building, a Hot Lime demonstration and more. It is a wonderful mix of learning, outdoors, good food, socializing, accomplishment and craic. Introduced by Carol Loftus of the Mulranny Environmental Group, from the Great Western Greenway which was the old Achill to Westport Railway line.

Féile na gCloch, the festival of stones, unfurls virtually in 2020 on the 18th and 19th September. On both days at 1pm you can follow the event on Facebook. Or engage with the event whenever suits you via the Galway Heritage website.

Féile na gCloch, festival of stones, is an annual event on Inis Oírr that takes place every September. It brings together practitioners in stone walling, stone carving and letter carving from around the world to celebrate the heritage of the stones of the Aran Islands. In 2017, a new workshop was introduced, to reflect on the role that drawing and sketching plays in each of these traditions.
