THE CHILDREN OF THE SUN BY THE INISHOWEN CARNIVAL GROUP FROM DONEGAL [ST. PATRICK'S DAY PARADE IN DUBLIN - 17 MARCH 2019]
A story inspired by the many ancient wonders of the world from Egyptian pyramids, obelisks and hieroglyphs, Nasca lines, Sumerian, Mayan and Aztec architecture to name but a few, often attributing their creation to star travelling visitors from other worlds.
This pageant weaves a fantastically outlandish story of the “Children of the Sun” a star travelling people who have roamed the universe for millenia, collecting and sharing knowledge, contributing to great architecture, stories and art. Is it possible these star travellers visited Ireland leaving behind some knowledge of the stars etched as rock art across the country?
Inishowen Carnival Group is celebrating 26 years of carnival activity and has been taking part in the Dublin Parade for 22 of those years. The company is based near Malin Head on the beautiful Inishowen peninsula on the northern coast of Donegal.
