CROKE Park’s GAA Museum is marking the ancient Irish festival of Samhain in a new specially-created family event – Samhain Tours & Tales – this Halloween.
The Samhain festival traditionally marked the end of the harvest season and was the most important of all the Celtic celebrations.
With this in mind the GAA Museum will be celebrating in style and invites families to take part in a unique experience which includes a stadium treasure hunt and a performance from one of Ireland’s leading ‘seanchaithe’ or storytellers – the legendary Eddie Lenihan.
Visitors will follow harvest-themed clues around Croke Park to find Séamus the Samhain Scarecrow as he guards Harvest treasure somewhere in the stadium!
The clues will lead through the dressing rooms and out pitchside in the hunt for the elusive Séamus who, when found, will have a small gift for all younger guests.
Following a successful harvest, visitors will be treated to a very special show by storyteller Eddie.
Seanchaí Eddie will have his audience enthralled as he recalls the Samhain of his childhood and remembers hurling with the fairy folk!
Tickets for this evening event must be booked in advance online. A family ticket costs €50, and the price also includes a hot Halloween drink for all adult ticketholders, a small gift for all children and late entry to the GAA Museum, including its Interactive Games Zone.
Visitors should allow approximately two hours for the experience.
