You have often heard of the phrase ‘Sing for your Supper’ – well this is what you will be invited to do at the music and song session with a difference!
We welcome you to sit around an open fire within the tranquil setting of Bluebell Lane at the foot of Slieve Gullion, where you will be invited to literally ‘Sing for your Supper’ at this session led by local musicians, Pádraig Carragher and Colleen Savage.
Come and listen to song and music from South Armagh and the Ring of Gullion while you tuck into homemade gourmet vegetable stew washed down with a bottle of Slieve Gullion Cider. If you are a musician or a singer, whether you chose to sing unaccompanied, accompanied or wish to play a tune – this is the event for you!
This is the final event of the Lúnasa Festival 2021 and a fitting close as the sun sets on the festival for yet another year.

Rapid COVID-19 tests – known as Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests
The use of LFD testing is important as an additional measure alongside the range of existing safety measures in place. It is important to remember that, even with a negative LFD test, continue to follow all other public health and safety measures in place.
It is strongly recommended that anyone participating in, or attending, any event should test themselves before they attend, and on days 2 and 8 after the event. The purpose of this testing is to identify any positive cases in advance of the event, and allow them to self-isolate. Post event testing will also help to identify any asymptomatic COVID-19 infections arising from the event, or social interactions that may occur before or after an organised event.
Rapid COVID-19 tests can be obtained by anyone who requires them, free of charge. Rapid test packs can be ordered online for free delivery to your home.
You can also order them for collection in a number of locations across NI:
