Museum opening hours: 10AM to 5PM (Mon-Sat), 12noon-4pm (Sunday)

Cruinniú na nÓg – Write on Track!

Join Grainne McCool from The Write Stuff Kids Club for a morning of words and creativity where you will create various forms of poetic verse about all our communities and explore how we feel about them.

Each session will also explore the wonderful surroundings of a railway carriage in which the workshops take place. Imagine the people who have travelled in this carriage in years gone by and write about what you imagine them doing and where they were going.

If you’re a writing buff and fancy a bit of craic in a carriage, this workshop is for you.

Workshop 1: Ages 6-9 years 11am – 1pm

Workshop 1: Ages 10 years + 1.30pm – 3.30pm
