About the event

Kicking off our Phase Two Campaign in fighting style, we've partnered with Fragarach Armoured Combat Ireland to showcase the skills of their medieval fighters, alongside the presentation of Knight of Gaelgara, our 11th title and our first Fantasy novel, written by Irish author Gary J. Martin. Beginning in the lovingly restored 'Archbishop's Palace', the event will be introduced by Ronald A. Geobey, Irish SFF author and Director of Temple Dark Books, before Gary reads from his debut novel and answers your questions. We will then step out into the sunlight - hopefully - where the fighters will entertain us with their combat displays. There will be snacks and refreshments, and members of An Garda Síochana will be collecting on behalf of their 'Little Blue Heroes' charity. Before you go, don't forget to visit the Knight of Gaelgara webpage to read the background story for the main duel, 'Roslind and Halfdan', and to meet the fighters.
