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.
