The Lad is a bible, and it’s a testament to the strength of its creators that the bible was used to create a fictional city in the form of a holiday destination, which was then followed up by a film and an animated series.
But what’s more interesting is that its creators, a group of Irish students, wanted to create something more than a holiday paradise.
They created ‘Festival Village’, a fictional community with the same sort of cultural values as a traditional village, but with the added twist of being a full-fledged town.
It’s a fictional town, with its own local, national and international identities, but it also contains a number of its own traditions.
There are the local traditions, like the Irish tradition of the bób, or the celebration of St Patrick’s Day.
There’s the Irish custom of the ‘dáil’, the assembly of the nation, which takes place on a Sunday.
There’s the tradition of “farming”, a practice of harvesting the local crops and using the resulting produce for a specific community, or even the village.
And there’s the celebration and celebration of Easter, which is celebrated in a town hall.
Festival village’s identity was born out of a desire to create the perfect community, and to create an authentic Irish experience in a fictional world.
“There are many, many, ways of creating a fictional village and then having the community come to life,” said James Byrne, the chief executive of The Lad.
“It was an opportunity to create this fictional town and create a community and that community came to life.”
And that’s exactly what happened.
Fiesta village, the fictional town of ‘Ferryland’A small, rural town in County Clare, on the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, is home to the main celebrations of Easter each year.
Its name is derived from the ‘Fáilte na Gael’ (Ferry), the Irish word for ‘land’ and the name of the town.
The town is also known as “Ferryville” in the United Kingdom.
The town was created by a group, including two students, at the University of Northern Ireland, and the two students have a history of creating fictitious communities.
The first group of students at the university started in 2001, creating “Fáile na Gael” and “Fainte na Gaeilge”, which they then adapted into their own fictional towns.
But they realised that this fictional community was just one of many.
“The real town, it’s just a small village,” Byrne told The Irish Times.
“The real Irish community was much bigger.
So, we had to create another town, and then we created ‘Festive Town’, which is the fictional community.”
It was a very simple thing to do, and we realised that we could make a real town in the place where we live and we could really take this town and bring it to life in a way that we couldn’t do with the ‘festival village’.
“We had the opportunity to actually put the Irish community to the test in a very real town and in a real village, which would be a real community, a real nation and a real country.”
A community with a history in the makingThe original Fainte, the town’s name, was derived from a mythical place, a land that lies somewhere between the Sea of Cortés and the River Teigue, in the west of Ireland.
Faintte na gaeilgge, or “The Land of Fainting”, is located just off the coast of Co Mayo, on a stretch of the Teigue River, a tributary of the River Seine.
Ferrylands, or Fains, are the Irish version of “Fay na Geadr”, which is a mythical land of Ireland and which is located in the far north of the country.
Farewell to the landThe fictional Fainteran community, Fiesta Village, has been in existence since 2007, with the students’ initial idea of creating it coming from the fictional “Fianna Fáil.”
“We were trying to recreate the fiesta tradition, which we found in the village and from the local people,” Byrne said.
“But it had an identity and a history and a place and a community that was very much rooted in the local community.
We just wanted to have a place where everyone could gather and be happy, and have a community where we could be able to celebrate Easter, but also have a real sense of belonging to the town.”
In 2015, the group decided to create “Festive Fáile” to honour the town, its traditions and its culture.
“I think that’s what’s been the biggest challenge for us to bring the festival village to life, and I think that we’ve succeeded,” Byrne added.
“We have the perfect town, the perfect people, the ideal location, the best of everything
