Bealtaine Festival at Offaly Libraries 2024

Bealtaine is Ireland’s national celebration of the arts and creativity as we age. An initiative of Age & Opportunity Arts, the programme runs throughout the month of May.

Offaly Libraries has developed a diverse programme of workshops and activities providing older people with an opportunity to be more creative, to encourage meaningful participation and to celebrate how our creative potential can improve with age.

Glass-painting workshops, Mindfulness and Resin Crafts will be available in libraries across the county.  Kilcormac Library will host a felting display, while Tullamore Library will be treated to a special concert by The Gramophone Society. 

Birr, Clara, Edenderry and Tullamore will host a series of social tea & coffee mornings.  Local author, Tom Minnock, will join the Clara coffee morning to talk about his book “Down the Decades”. 

Please note that the details of events listed above are provided by the relevant Local Authorities.
