Join Dublin’s Historian-in-Residence for Children Dervilia Roche for this free, interactive workshop for children aged 9 – 12 at Richmond Barracks.

As we prepare to celebrate St Brigid’s Day, discover the fact, fiction and folklore of Brigid as goddess and saint. Explore the rich and varied stories about her life, learn about traditions associated with her, and make your very own St Brigid’s Day cross.

All materials will be provided.
