St. John Festival day in Íontas Community Centre, Castleblayney 24th June

Blayney Blades International are hosting a summer family event to celebrate The Feast Day of Saint John the Baptist in Íontas Cumunity Centre, Castleblayney on 24th June 11am to 5pm.

The Feast Day of Saint John the Baptist known as St. John's is celebrated throughout the world. The bible states that St. John was born six months before Jesus, therefore the feast of John the Baptist was fixed on June 24th, six months before Christmas. The Feast Day is one of the few saint's days which commemorate the anniversary of the birth, rather than death, of a saint being honored.

The family friendly event will include Bouncy Castles for the little ones, Music by Divi Jani, Magician Keith McCabe, variety of snacks and a free BBQ.

Entry fee is €5 and a free entry for kids
