Ferrybank library the Witch trails explained

 Ferrybank library Unearths the Shadows of the Witch trails with our enigmatic guide, the intrepid historian Fin Dwyer.

Calling all curious souls! Step beyond the creaking doors of Ferrybank Library and brace yourselves for a spine-tingling journey through time. Together, we’ll peel back the layers of the Witch Trial of 1324—a dark chapter etched into Kilkenny’s ancient tapestry. From crumbling scrolls to quills dipped in secrets, we’ll tread where whispers linger.

But wait, there’s more! To mark the 700th anniversary, we’ve concocted a potion of workshops just for you, young adventurers aged 10-12. These sessions will whisk you away to a realm where knights duel with ink-stained quills and dragons guard dusty manuscripts.

So clutch your curiosity, step into the fog of ages, and let’s unravel history with a dash of whimsy and a sprinkle of magic.
