The Celtic people were worshippers of nature. It was a time to enjoy the fruits of the land. Ashes from the bonfire were used to ward off evil and placed on crops to ensure a good harvest. The tradition of Bonfire Night like so many of our customs had died out in this region until Joe and Marian Bradley revived it in 1996 and it has being going strong since.
