Jofur Drengir Viking association will be showcasing different Viking cultures, Crafts, full contact combat and more. Multiple Viking associations from all parts of Ireland and Northern Ireland will also be taking part in the events. The Vikings will be setting up their camp on the Salesian ground so the public can get the full experience of being a Viking.

This year the Parents’ Association of the Salesian Secondary College has also decided to organise a cycle to fundraise for the school. The focus this year is on raising money for the school’s new Autism Spectrum Disorder Programme. The cycle will take place on the 22nd of April comprising two west Limerick routes of 45 or 80 km. The event is for anyone over the age of 16 and will cost €25 (€20 if a member of Cycle Ireland) payable on the day at the school.
