The Táin March is a fantastic event with plenty of fun and entertainment available for people of all ages and walks of life.
What to wear
Everyone taking part on the march is encouraged to get into the spirit of the march and wear the dress of the time (Circa 1 A.D.). Men and women, boys and girls all marched in Maeve’s army.
There were chieftains, soldiers, blacksmiths, kings, queens, weapon makers, cooks, scouts, princes, princesses, young and old. Everyone marched!
Women were equal to the men, and some women were soldiers and warriors too.
