The Irish Axemen Association

The Irish Axemen Association will be holding a training day Saturday 19th July on the grounds of Birr Castle Demesne. From 1pm until 5pm visitors to the Castle will get the opportunity to watch the members as they train in professional lumberjack techniques. Normally training sessions are closed and the Irish Axemen can only be seen in action, demonstrating historic logging techniques, at various shows around the country. However, in association with Birr Castle Demesne, the decision to make this particular training session public was taken. Normal entrance fees to the Castle will apply and visitors can expect that the presence of the Irish Axemen will add to their overall visiting experience. Hope to see you there!!...
