Heritage week at Thomastown Library invites Parents and Children to embark on a Magical Quest! 

Prepare to be whisked away into the heart of Ireland’s legendary lore during Heritage Week from August 17th to 25th, 2024!  Join the enthralling Helena the Storyteller for an afternoon filled with the magic of yesteryears.

 A Treasure Trove of Tales! 

  • Listen to the whispers of the Banshee, as her wails weave through the winds of time.
  • Frolic with the Pooka, a playful spirit shifting shapes and realms.
  • Tread lightly amidst the Piseógs, where old superstitions cast long shadows.
  • Wander through the Fairy Forts and Trees, portals to an enchanted Otherworld.
These spellbinding narratives are our bridge to the ancestral spirits, uniting us with the vibrant threads of our cultural fabric. This is more than just storytelling—it’s a passage for both the young and the young at heart to experience the mystical heartbeat of Ireland. 

Secure your place in this epic adventure and let the ancient stories unfold before your eyes!
