    Festival of Oimelc

    Oimelc is a Celtic Celebration marking the half way mark between beginning of winter solace and spring solace. As the legend goes, Cailleach, the hag of Gaelic tradition gathers her firewood for the rest of the winter. Legend has it that if she intends to make the winter last a good while longer, she will make sure the weather on Oimelc is bright and sunny, so she can gather plenty of firewood. Therefore, people are generally relieved if Oimelc is a day of foul weather, as it means the Cailleach is asleep and winter is almost over.
    Come join us celebrating with fun, games and prizes.
