Red head festival planned for Forkhill next month


Talk of the Town


Red heads traditionally get their fair share of slagging but you’d be a brave man or woman to do it in Forkhill next month at the first local red head festival.

The Fleadh Rúa will take place on Saturday June 14th. It is described as a “festival-gathering, celebrating the existence of the unique red-head gene, in an atmosphere of traditional Irish music and culture.”

A PIPS (Public Initiative for the Prevention of Suicide & Self-harm) fundraising event, some of the events planned for the day include a funfair, an arts and craft market, a farmer’s market, a ceili and a ‘Lovely Red Headed Girl’ contest.

You can find out more about the event on its official Facebook page here.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
