Criunniu na Nog – The Ravenous Beast – Storywalk – 12th June 2021

Set in the beautiful location of Ardgillan Castle & Demesne, which boasts spectacular views, forest walks, a children’s playground, manicured gardens as well as an abundance of open space for children to run and play and enjoy being outside, the Story Trail project aims to create a family experience that combines creativity, literacy and exercise in a fun and interactive way.

Niamh Sharkey, author, illustrator and former Children’s Laureate has kindly given Fingal County Council permission to display her book “The Ravenous Beast” along the Storytrail, and has also agreed to do a book-reading and draw-along which are also planned to take place in Ardgillan Castle, If the book-reading has to be pre-recorded, for Covid reasons it will be available to view on 12th June on this link:

Pages of Niamh’s wonderful book will be mounted on custom made posts dotted all along a forest walking trail adding an element of delight to the already glorious surroundings. 

The good news is that because the project is outdoors and self-paced, with people accessing it in their family units, the trail is Covid friendly.

The Ardgillan Story book trail will open this coming Saturday 12th June 2021 from 11 a.m. come along and enjoy a walk through the beautiful woods and let the little ones get swept up in the adventures of the RAVENOUS BEAST along the way.”
