Events – Tourney of Manannan Mac Lir

Tourney of Manannan Mac Lir XLI

January 28, 2023

With the cool winds of winter chilling your bones, perhaps you should cast your eyes to the Canton of Tear-Sea’s Shore, where the 41st Tourney of Manannan Mac Lir will happen in the balmy climes of Southern Atlantia. Plenty of fighting will be available with the tradition Brooch of Manannan Tourney, with bragging rights to the oldest continuously awarded tourney prize up for grabs. And just to make it more challenging, each competitor must come up with a boast about his or her prowess before taking the field, sponsored by Mistress Adendra! What, that’s not enough fighting? Well, how about a Great Weapons tourney to help satisfy the need! And don’t forget our Rapier Fighters, with their own Brooch Tourney, and a Cut and Thrust Tourney to follow. The youth of Atlantia will be pleased to know that they also are promised a fun tourney from Baron Roibeard mac Oscair!

The more artistically inclined will find they will be challenged by a fiber arts competition (youth, novice and experienced) sponsored by Mistress Alisoun, a largess competition benefiting our Baron and Baroness of Hidden Mountain, and a garb accessories competition sponsored by Master Geoffrey. A fiber Solar will be running during the day.

And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Manannan without a delicious feast, prepared by the Three Barons. Please contact Baron Ingvar (email: with any dietary concerns.
