Lúgh Long Arm Motor Bike Rally
Lúgh Long Arm Rally, Rossin, Co. Meath
From the 11th to the 13th of August
A new festival celebrating the myths and legends of the Celtic god Lúgh.
This is a 3 day Music/Heritage Festival.
The lands of Louth will rumble once more as we follow the path of the ancient God Lúgh whose name has been given to this county. In Louth, we pride ourselves on being the region where most Irish myths and legends take place. But to us, it’s not considered folklore.... it’s our DNA. Not only does he lend his name to this county but the month August is also named in his honor and August is the Irish month of the ancient Chariot so we ride with the Gods and Goddesses of the land keeping their memories alive and strong.
If you’re a rally fanatic or rally first timer these 3 days have got 2 things in mind – YOU the biker and FUN.... Are you ready? We’re gonna rock so let’s R.O.L.L. The Rally Of Lúgh Longarm is a rally for all bikers of all levels. Whether you are thinking if biking is for you (it is), we have quality experts to show you the ropes, to the saddle hardened veterans who ride the tarmac when mere mortals are done, this is an event where people will return again and again. It is a rally for meeting new folks and having annual reunions. Join us in celebrating 3 days of the best scenery, history, music and old school revelry that all bikers will enjoy. All the while making new lifelong friends.
On the Saturday we have Ireland’s best Heritage Route, taking in all the sites connected to the land of Lúgh where the myths and legends of Ireland began.
Visit the Mound of Darkness, the greatest example of Celtic crosses on Earth, the Mound of Ireland’s first Warrior Poet, see the stone that kept the mighty Cú Chulainn aloft in the Field of Slaughter, reflect with the stations at St. Brigid’s Shrine or even defy gravity by rolling up a magic hill.
We have Free Passes to Newgrange and Knowth (where Buí, the wife of Lúgh is buried) courtesy of the OPW. A huge thank you to them for that.
There is a Photo Fun Run taking in 6 idyllic spots (Clogherhead, Annagassan, Blackrock, Gyles’ Quay, Carlingford and Omeath) around Louth in aid of the superb Malta Services Drogheda. Sunday sees a parade through Drogheda from 2pm.
All weekend we will have fun activities, stalls to haggle prices with, local craft beer and lots more.
There will be LongArm Discounts to Boyne Boats, Drogheda Millmount Museum, the Irish Military War Museum and plenty of local information in our free booklet of places to see in Drogheda.
For those staying in Drogheda, we have COMPLIMENTARY BUSES leaving from Bolton Square each day at 2pm, 5pm and 8pm and returning after the headline acts finish each night. There is also camping provided.
