Urlingford Library Fin Dwyer explores Kilkenny Witch Trials

Attention, young history detectives! 

Unlock the ancient secrets hidden within the Urlingford Library, where time itself bends and whispers echo through its hallowed halls. 

The Witch Trial of 1324: Join our intrepid guide, the daring historian Fin Dwyer, as we unravel the enigma of this dark chapter etched into Kilkenny’s tapestry. From crumbling scrolls to quills dipped in secrets, we’ll tread where whispers linger.

But wait, there’s more! To celebrate the 700th anniversary, we’ve concocted a potion of workshops just for you—brave adventurers aged 10-12. Picture a realm where ink-stained quills duel with dragons, and history dances with magic.

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.
