With this year Féile na gCloch (Festival of Stone) going online again, The Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland has got together with the festival to run another miniature dry stone walling competition.
We encourage everyone, young and old to get involved. We have some great prizes to give away over the weekend.
Your Miniature Walls
To enter your wall in the miniature wall competition post you photos or videos online using the hashtags #FeilenagCloch #miniaturewalls #drystonewall or email your creations to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will post all your creations on the Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland website and on social media. Closing date for entries is Sunday the 10th of October 2021.
For full information about the miniature dry stone wall competition and tips on how to build a miniature wall in your own home visit the dedicated page on the Dry Stone Wall Association of Ireland website.
Féile na gCloch, the festival of stones, unfurls virtually in 2021 on the 2nd October. 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. 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.
