Story Trail at Ardgillan Demesne

  • Reading

Set in the beautiful location of Ardgillan Castle & Demesne, 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. Niamh will also be doing 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 due to Covid-19 restrictions, it will be available to view on Saturday, June 12th on the webpage linked below.

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

In addition, copies of “The Ravenous Beast” will be distributed to junior infant classes in the local area and it’s hoped that 1,000 copies of the book will be donated in this way.

Fingal book fairies have also promised to fly into six other Fingal parks on June 12th to distribute copies of the book (details to follow).
