Lughnasadh 2017

August 1, 2017 in Ireland and Scotland

Lughnasadh takes place on August 01, 2017 and can also be called Lúnasa, Lůnastal, Luanistyn or Brón Trogain. It is an ancient Gaelic feast honoring the Irish deity Lugh and marking the beginning of the harvest season. Therefore the so called First Fruits are offered on Lughnasadh. In modern times Lughnasadh is also celebrated with joyful cultural events such as climbing hills and mountains. These events take place on Sundays and not necessarily on the day of Lughnasad. Some of them are Crom Dubh Sunday, Reek Sunday or Garland Sunday - the local community climbs a local hill. On some places there are also fairs and athletic contests taking place, mostly in Ireland and Scotland
