Cruinniú na Cásca - Midir and Etain in Wonderland

We had a fantastic day yesterday at our Cruinniú na Cásca Midir and Etain in Wonderland event. We were fully booked so over 80 people took part in the festivities. We searched the forest for fairies and flying fish, went down the rabbit tunnel to Wonderland and performed the Midir and Etain play. The roses were painted red for the Red Queen (or is it Fuamnach?). The Mad Hatter (or maybe that's Midir) and Alice hosted a wonderful tea party with delicious treats from chef Martin of Cook n Dine Longford and butterflies Etain and Absolem fluttered around joining in the fun. Amazing creations were made in the art room while the White Rabbit and Easter Bunny hid their delicious chocolate eggs around the garden. Thanks to everyone who came along and all our helpers for making it such a success. #Cruinniu #Cruinniunacasca #CreativeIrl #creativeardagh #CreativeIrelandLongford

Midir and Etain in Wonderland

Easter Monday 17th April, 3pm to 5pm
To celebrate Creative Ireland's Cruinniú na Cásca, Alice is visiting the Wonderland of Ardagh, home of the Legend of Midir and Etain. Is the Red Witch really Fuamnach? Is the White Witch Etain? Is the Mad Hatter Midir? Join the White Rabbit on his quest for the way into Tir na nÓg - you might even find a few eggs.
The story will inspire you at our Arts and Crafts workshop and then let your imagination run wild on our White Rabbit Easter Egg Hunt. Family fun for all ages.
