Join Caroline Busher to find out more about Strongbow with tales of invasions, power struggles and the legacy of this Norman lord. Caroline, who usually writes tales of magic and mystery, has brought her trademark colour and excitement to Strongbow’s adventures.

Afterwards pupils will participate in a creative workshop as Gaeilge with award- winning writer Réaltán Ní Leannáin. The multi-talented Réaltán is known for poetry, fiction and drama and is also an experienced and engaging teacher of languages. This workshop is ideal for children attending gaelscoil or a scoil in the Gaeltacht.

Pupils will finish their day with an art making workshop in response to the beautiful exhibition in Galway Arts Centre by artist and illustrator Sam Winston. The workshops will be delivered by Galway Arts Centre’s visual art team Judith Bernhardt and Maeve Mulrennan.
