Vikings return

LOUGH Neagh is the backdrop to an impressive Viking Raid at Maghery Country Park on Saturday, September 8 from 11am.

Watch the Vikings clamouring ashore welding swords and shields, yelling their war cry, and pillaging the ‘village’ then send the Viking Chieftain on this way to the ‘afterlife’ in spectacular style.

Watch battle tactics, Viking crafts and cooking displays, blacksmithing, have a go at archery and take a boat trip to nearby Coney Island.

View the rare breeds and the birds of prey and enjoy rides in a horse drawn carriage.

The event will also feature children’s water zorbing, inflatable slides, bouncy castles, and much more.

Maghery Country Park is located in the village of Maghery on the Lough Neagh Shore signposted all the way from both Junctions 12 and 13 of the M1.

It is expected that around 1,000 people will attend the event.
