If you are a fan of Star Wars, an event not to be missed is the annual Star Wars Celebration. This iconic celebration draws legions of fans, garrisons and groups from all around the world, including Ireland’s Star Wars costuming group; The Emerald Garrison.
The Emerald Garrison “Invades” Derry City
Founded in 2007, the Emerald Garrison is celebrating 10 years of bringing “the force” to the Island of Ireland. Based in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, the Garrison has brought a Star Wars Invasion of epic proportions to locations throughout the country. Having attended an event called “Invasion” Derry, I can see first hand why the group has amassed such a loyal following. The “Invasion” features amazing sets, accurately crafted by its members who also adorn fantastic costumes that will make you feel you are in the presence of Darth Vader himself.
Member, J J Mc Gettigan, describes that the aim of the Garrison is to “enjoy what we do and help raise funds for and an awareness of all of the charities we work through”. In recognition of there professional yet fun attitude to costuming, V.I.P’s. within the Star Wars community actively support events held by “The Outlaws” from the Emerald Isle.
