Admission free The Linenhall Arts Centre LA GRANDE VICTOIRE: The Races of Castlebar Re-enactment A once in a lifetime opportunity to see history being expertly recreated and dramatically brought to life on the streets of Castlebar, just as it happened in 1798. First a fife and drum band sets the beat as they lead the Redcoats through the town. A clatter of iron shod hooves will ring throughout Main Street as a mounted sentry announces the French arrival from his charger. Watch as the Irish Pikemen and French soldiers come into view, see the redcoats chased down the historic Staball Hill, hear the crackle of muskets, the boom and bellow of cannon, the clash of steel sword and pikes, as the battle commences in earnest. Watch in awe as the French army supported by Pikemen advance, retreat and advance again up the Main Street. Cheer the final victory near Christ Church and enjoy the final action as the redcoats race from the town-hence the name‘The Races of Castlebar’. Commemorative dedication at John Moore / French Monuments Then, join with the dignitaries at a dedication and remembrance ceremony for those from all sides who participated in the Rebellion of 1798.
