Holywood’s Maypole

Holywood’s Maypole is the only one surviving in Ireland today and early maps show a Maypole has stood on the site since the 1620’s. Today it is still the focus of the town’s annual May Day Celebrations and fair, when local school children dance around the Maypole alongside market stalls and family attractions.
