Witch Trials with Fin Dwyer @ the Mayfair

Calling all curious minds! Step beyond the creaking doors of Mayfair Library and brace yourselves for a spine-tingling journey through time.

Join our enigmatic guide, the intrepid historian Fin Dwyer, as we unravel the mysteries 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 celebrate 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.
