THE magnificent castles and round towers of Laois will be explored at free online workshops for children during Heritage Week.
Children aged six to 12 will make models of towers and castles during the events, which will run from 11.30am – 1pm on Tuesday 17 and Thursday 19 August.
The workshops on the county’s castles and early Christian round towers promise to be fun as well as educational, as they explore the area’s incredibly rich early and medieval heritage.
The ‘Discover Laois: Mighty Castles and Amazing Round Towers’ workshops will be presented by Dig it Kids, in association with Laois Heritage Office and Laois Libraries.
The sessions are supported by the Heritage Council, as part of national Heritage Week which will run from Saturday 14 to Sunday 22 August.
While the workshops are free of charge, early booking is required. Details are available at https://digitkids.ie/book-online-courses/.
