The Irish festival of Imbolc (Im-bol-c) marks the beginning of spring and is often associated with Saint Brigid's Day, one of the patron saints of Ireland. To mark the changing seasons, children's authors, Marianne McShane and Máire Zepf, have uncovered some of the magical and mythical tales from Irish folklore to share with your little ones. 

Come along to this special Irish-speaking children's workshop and listen to our storytellers as they weave new life into old stories!

Saturday 27th January (11:00 to 12:30) 

Children's author, Máire Zepf, will tell the seasonal tale of the Cailleach Bhéara and her magical battle with Bríd, the goddess of spring in this special Irish langauge workshop. Little ones can also get involved with activities inspired by the theme of the story!
