Congratulations Eplaheimr!

Our good friends in Eplaheimr have shared the very happy news that they are to become a barony next summer! This is a large undertaking, and we at Dun in Mara would like to congratulate them on this major accomplishment.

Armoured fighting practices - April-June 2019

Here are our Armoured Combat practice dates until the end of 2019.

Reflecting on Pride

An idea for the shire to participate in the Dublin Pride parade was mooted some time last winter, and Aodh set about liaising with the organisers, but we only got the green light a couple of months ago. I had suggested combining such a march with a demo-like revel, and Sela volunteered to organise a pub room for the purpose. Next was the time to start drumming up participants for both, and we were pleased that we ended up with good numbers. We had 17 people marching in the parade, representing Dun In Mara, Eplaheimr, Glen Rathlin and Harpelstane - Roxanne flew from Edinburgh specially for the occasion. (The planned representative from Polderslot is still recovering from her traffic accident).
