People are invited to climb to the top of this Laois landmark and experience a unique musical performance in the surrounds of the ruins of the ancient fort. This concert is organised in association with Music Generation Laois, and will take place (weather permitting) at 5pm.

The climb to and from the fort will be led by the Laois Walks Festival Committee, who have volunteered their time to assist. Light refreshments will be served, and people are advised to wear appropriate footwear and clothing.
