Welcome to the Shire of Tir Bannog’s website!  We are an official branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism (  As such, we take part in a variety of SCA activities, from the “arts of War” (heavy fighting, rapier fighting, siege engines, combat and target archery) to the “arts of Peace” (garb making, leather working, calligraphy, brewing, blacksmithing, etc.).

The Shire of Tir Bannog (Land of Peaks) resides in the Principality of Tir Righ, which is in the Kingdom of An Tir.  It stretches from Hazelton to Burns Lake, in the Canadian Province of British Columbia.

Please feel free to wander around the site and check out who we are and what we do.  Hopefully we’ll pique your interest enough to come and join us at one of our Events!

What is the SCA?

“The SCA is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe. Our "Known World" consists of 19 kingdoms, with over 30,000 members residing in countries around the world. Members, dressed in clothing of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, attend events which feature tournaments, royal courts, feasts, dancing, various classes & workshops, and more.”
