Folklore Project is a Big Success!

Storyteller Helena Byrne has been working with Mrs Walshe and the girls from 5th and 6th Class for the past few months.

The girls' project is entitled 'The Magic of Local Lore' and it features stories they gathered from their parents and grandparents.

The exhibition of their stories opened on Friday 8th December, in Castlecomer Library.

It will be available to all during December, please visit and enjoy the rich array of stories. Everything from wedding traditions in Lithuania, to the very first ice-cream shop in 'Comer, to groundbreaking sportswomen, from games and hobbies of the past, to memories of the local mining heritage.

This is an exhibition that is sure to go down in history, itself!

Congratulations to all the pupils involved, to Mrs Walshe and to Helena, for creating such a brilliant resource for us all, and for bringing the past to life.
