Affordable and fun guiding throughout Northern Ireland

Mayday marks the beginning of Summer.

Folk believed tradition of driving herds of cows between two bonfires to purify the herd and also bring luck.

May flowers such as primroses, gorse or hawthorn blossom were gathered before dawn and placed in bundles on door posts to ward of evil.

Also springs of rowan or hawthorne could be placed over the byre door or even across the horns of a cow to prevent milk thieves from steeling your summer’s milk through a curse.

Enjoy your May Day.
