Tomorrow, Sunday, June 21, is Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year.
And to mark the occasion, the family behind the Merry Mill organic gluten free oats business are hosting a socially-distance gathering on the Rock of the Dunamaise.
It might mean an early rise but what better way to watch the sun come up than from one of Laois’s most glorious beauty spots with stunning views of the countryside in all directions.
“This year we’d love if you would share your creativity through reciting a poem, playing an instruments or singing a song,” say the organisers on their Facebook page.
The Merry Mill is run by Kevin and Jenny Scully and their four daughters at Merrymount in Vicarstown.
The event is taking place at 4.45am at the Rock of Dunamase.
Set the alarm clock and get up good early.
You won’t regret it.
