Traditional Iron-Age Roundhouse – European Heritage Open Days (EHOD)

Traditional Iron-Age Roundhouse – European Heritage Open Days (EHOD)
Come and see a traditional Iron-Age Roundhouse, built with inspiration from an archaeological dig carried out at the Dorsey, the ancient gateway to Ulster. 

During your visit you will hear about what life may have been like around 2000 years ago in this part of the world, you’ll hear about how people built their houses using traditional techniques and local materials.

This area is famous for its myths and legends, and it’s over these fields and hills that CuChulainn roamed and battled. Hear about the heroes of times gone by at the foot of Slieve Gullion at Bluebell Lane Glamping.

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:

If anyone has symptoms of COVID-19, they should self-isolate and book a PCR test immediately. Please do not attend events unless you receive a negative PCR test.  PCR tests are available at testing sites across Northern Ireland and can be booked at:
