Trim Swift Festival - The Feat of Clay

Swift Satire Festival, Trim has featured a novelty reading of one of Swift's works each year. This year has possibly the most novel reading of all with The Feat of Clay reading at 11:30am on Saturday 12 July.

This is a fun outdoor reading of Swift’s wicked satire on religion, A Tale Of A Tub, simultaneously by 125 people. Each reader will have one foot on the sod of County Meath and the other foot on the clay of Kilroot, County Antrim, where Jonathan Swift ministered before coming to Laracor, Trim. How will it be done? Come along and see!

The fact that this takes place on the twelfth of July is especially significant.

Participation is free. Registration takes place at 11.30am! Email Paddy Smith at to book your place. Venue: Trim Castle grounds (opposite Garda Station)
