Hill of the O’Neill comes to life with reenactment of the Earl of Tyrone’s wedding

Guests at the historic Hill of the O’Neill and Ranfurly House Arts and Visitors Centre were treated to a wedding banquet with a difference on Wednesday night (April 28), as a unique recreation of a sixteenth century wedding banquet celebrating the marriage between Hugh O’Neill and Mabel Bagenal took place.

The event hosted 100 guests from the regional travel and tourism trade, accommodation providers and Visitor Information Staff for an evening designed to bring the past to life.

The evening was brought to life as distinguished guests were transported back to a day of yore as Tony, Sarah-Jane, Aoibh, Conor, and Sean from The Craic Theatre Coalisland reenacted the wedding of Hugh O’Neill to Mabel Bagenal, his then third wife. The script for the evening was written by renowned Co Tyrone author Emma Heatherington.
