I'll be in the town of Slane on April 30th/May 1st, and was wondering if anyone knows of any Beltane/May Day celebrations in the area this year. I'm not hiring a car, so I'd need to take a bus/train if it's outside of Slane. It would be pretty easy to get to Dublin, but I'm not sure about other cities. Also, I won't be able to stay overnight in another city, as I have to be in Slane to work the next morning. Has anyone heard of any celebrations around this area? Thanks!

1Good question...there's normally a gathering at the nearby historic Hill of Tara which is the centre for 'this kind of thing' (!) in Ireland...I just checked the web-site and it's only displaying last year's festivities...(Beltane is Bealtaine in Irish)...
Not sure how you can find out more...maybe you could join Ireland's most voluminous internet supermarket boards.ie and post a question in the Co Meath (where Tara is located) thread and see if anyone knows...
Or see if there's another branch on boards.ie that might be better suited to this kind of query...
