Museum competition for Schools

 

Inspired by their new exhibition The Corrib: Myth, Legend and Folklore, Galway City Museum are inviting 3rd to 6th class pupils to research a tale from their locality, to retell it, and illustrate it.


This competition has some incredible prizes! First prize is a mini exhibition on The Corrib: Myth, Legend and Folklore featuring ten beautifully-illustrated lightweight panels for display in the school. The second prize is an art workshop for your class with illustrator Sadie Cramer (subject to government guidelines on Covid-19). The third prize is a copy of Away with the Fairies (2020) by William Henry, which contains fifty strange and amazing stories from Galway city and county. For the full article to
