The Irish Axemen Association

Info from The Irish Axemen Association training day on Saturday 19th July, 2010 on the grounds of Birr Castle Demesne. From 1pm until 5pm the visitors to the Castle got 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.
