Following the huge success of last year’s Iron Ore Smelting demonstrations Paul Rondelez is back with more experts to teach and demonstrate during That Beats Banagher Festival 2024! In 2023, as part of the That Beats Banagher Festival, some of this ore was smelted into iron. This year will see several furnaces pumping out true Banagher iron. The Furnace Festival takes place next to the amazing blacksmiths of Forged in Ireland who demonstrate the skills involved in modern forging.
What to expect: Smelting training with Jens Jørgen Olesen from Denmark and Kamila Brodowka from Poland who are two of the best in Europe and smelting demonstrations open to the public. Continuous smelting, regular blooms being ‘born’. Free guided tours of the Open Air Museum explaining bloomery iron smelting and the history of iron production in Ireland.
Demonstrations Schedule:
Time: Welcoming the public from 10 am to 6 pm
Location: The Barrack Yard, Banagher

Smelting Training: There is an opportunity for those interested in learning how to smelt iron and carry on doing so in future. The training will be delivered by Jens Jørgen Olesen from Denmark and Kamila Brodowka from Poland who are two of the best in Europe.
