St Macdara's day, July 16th
All welcome, free transport for those who came without a boat and nary a lambeg drum in sight. An antidote to the usual carry-on up north....
On July 16th every year, crowds make the journey from the village of Carna on the mainland to St. Mac Dara’s Island, either being piloted by charitable fishermen or paddling their own canoes (and other small boats). Once there, a mass is held in honour of his life, outside the ancient stone oratory – restored during the 1970s – that also bears his name.
