Castlecomer library Witch trials

Time Travelers Unite!: Calling all curious minds! Step into the magical realm of Castlecomer Library and buckle up for a wild ride through history. 

Join our time-traveling guide, historian Fin Dwyer, as we unravel the mysteries of the Witch Trial of 1324—a pivotal moment in Kilkenny’s epic saga. From ancient scrolls to enchanted quills, we’ll explore it all!

And guess what? To celebrate the 700th anniversary, we’ve brewed up a potion of workshops just for you, young adventurers aged 10-12. These sessions will whisk you away to a world where knights duel with quills and dragons guard dusty manuscripts.

So grab your curiosity and hop aboard! Let’s unravel history with a dash of whimsy and a sprinkle of magic.
