Visit to Turlough House.

On Thursday, September 12th, 2002 we paid our first visit of the year to The Museum of Country Life in Turlough. We took part in a fascinating workshop where we learned all about Harvest Knots. We really enjoyed our time there. We even got to bring home our Harvest knots!


We couldn't wait to get started!



See what We Made!

Scealaíocht na Nollag.

An Nollag

Inniu an Luan an 9th lá de Mhí na Nollag 2002. Tá an Nollaig ag teacht . Chuir me suas an crann Nollag sa seomra suite. Chuir mé agus mo dheirfiúr suas na maisúcháin. Chuir mo dheirfiúr soilse ildaite ar an gcrann. Rinne mé an mainséar agus chuir mé é sa seomra suite. Tháinig Daidí abhaile agus chuir sé an t-aingil ar an gcrann. Tiocfaidh San Nioclás ar Oíche Nollag. Gheobhaidh mé E kara agus mobile.

An Nollag

Tá an Nollaig ag teacht . Chuiramar suas an crann Nollag. Tá crann Nollag sa seamra suite agus tá ceann eile ag barr an seamra suite . Chuiramar suas na maisiúchain ar an gcrann Nollag . Tá soilse ldaite ar an gcrann. Tá angil ar bharr an crann . Tá an mainséar sa seomra suite . Tiocfaidh San Nioclás ar Oíche Nollag.
Nollag Shona duit.


Our Easter Eggs!

Our visit to The Linenhall

We visited the Linenhall Centre in Castlebar on Wednesday 23rd March to take part in a workshop on weaving.While there, we heard lots about the history of the linen weaving industry in Ireland. We also got a chance to browse around the weaving exhibition entitled Hand to Hand, which showed the work of Allie Kay, the lady who was giving the workshop.Then we got to try some weaving ourselves, using various fabrics and even plastic!We also got to try out an old method of weaving linen, which was really difficult and we all realised that weavers would have had to be both very skilled and patient!A great time was had by all and we all got to take our own piece of weaving home.

Our Easter Eggs

We made Easter Eggs collages with pieces of torn coloured paper and decorating them with glitter and coloured ribbon.
