To allow Aonach Mhacha  to become a landmark venue for the Irish language and cultural arts in Armagh City, Mid-Ulster and the Border Region - We need your help to complete the fitting out and finishing off of our state of the art community Irish language and culture centre in the heart of the ancient city of Armagh.

Aonach Mhacha had only opened the doors in our new-built premises on the site of the former fire station in March when Covid-19 forced the country into lockdown. The centre hopes to offer a range of services and attractions for those with an interest in the Irish language, arts and cultural heritage as soon as possible and with your help. 

 Now walkers will complete a 22-mile trek linking two historical sites which will support the new venue.

The beneficiary of much-needed funds will be the new state-of-the-art Irish language and cultural centre in the city.

The sponsored Camino will take place  between Tí Chulainn in Mullaghbane to Navan Fort, on the outskirts of Armagh.

Beidh siúlóirí Chamino Mhacha ag tabhairt faoi shiúlóid urraithe ó Thí Chulainn, ar an Mhullach Bhán, go hEamhain Mhacha, taobh amuigh de Chathair Ard Mhacha (22 míle). Siúlfaidh lucht an Camino i gcoiscéimeanna Chú Chulainn agus é ag pilleadh i ndiaidh a chuid gaiscí ar Eamhain Mhacha. Ba é Cú Chulainn príomhlaoch na Craoibhe Rua agus cosantóir clúiteach Uladh.

Walkers will follow in the footsteps of Setanta, the ancient Ulster boy hero who made his heroic return to the Red Branch Warriors at Eamhain Mhacha (Navan Fort) from Tí Chulainn with his new hero’s name, Cú Chulainn, the Hound of Culann. He became the foremost warrior of the Red Branch Heroes and the legendary defender of Ulster.

Beidh siúlóirí Camino Mhacha ag tógáil airgid d’Aonach Mhacha, lár-ionad Gaeilge agus ealaíon i gCathair Ard Mhacha. I Mí an Mhárta 2020 a d’oscail Aonach Mhacha, ina mbeidh réimse leathan seirbhísí agus imeachtaí ar fáil dóibh siúd a bhfuil spéis acu sa Ghaeilge, sna healaíona agus san oidhreacht Ghaelach.

The sponsored walk will take place on August 1, to coincide with the Lúnasa Festival, starting at 10am.

Camino Mhacha sponsored walk will be preceded by ‘The Hero’s Breakfast’ in Aonach Mhacha after which transport will be provided to Tí Chulainn, Mullaghbane, for the commencement of the return walk.

Camino Mhacha re-imagines Cú Chulainn’s Trek which was highlighted in the mythology of Ulster. The heroic tales of Cú Chulainn have inspired men and women to great achievements since first written down by early Christian monks in the 7th Century.

Camino Mhacha will re-enact this ancient episode which forms part of our unique Gaelic heritage on an annual basis. Upon their return to Aonach Mhacha walkers will enjoy ‘The Heroes’ Feast’ with friends and supporters.

Beidh Camino Mhacha ar siúl i mbliana Dé Sathairn 1ú Lúnasa 2020 mar chuid d’Fhéile Lúnasa. Sula dtosóidh an Camino, íosfaidh siúlóirí ‘Bricfeasta an Laoich’ in Aonach Mhacha agus tógfaidh bus iad go Tí Chulainn. Tá sé i gceist Camino Mhacha a shiúl go bliantúil. Tá an tsiúlóid seo luaite sa Rúraíocht, scéalta miotais Uladh, agus ba mhaith le lucht eagraithe Camino Mhacha beatha úr a chur sna scéalta ársa seo tríd an oilithreacht mhiotaseolaíoch seo. Beidh ‘Féasta an Laoich’ ar siúl nuair a bhainfidh lucht Camino Mhacha Ard Mhacha amach le cairde agus le lucht tacaíochta.
