Are you a Lord of the Rings series fan?

Well this is the event for you! Did you know that in 1949 JRR Tolkien was an external examiner in the English Department of what is now The University of Galway? Tolkien was a frequent visitor to the West of Ireland and often stayed in the Village of Ballyvaughan, Co.Clare. The Burren Tolkien Society believes that JRR Tolkien drew inspiration for his most famous works form the dramatic Burren Landscapes.
