Pre-University Arts

Dr Michael Finnegan, from Cavan County Museum, was a guest speaker for our Pre-University Arts students today.

Michael spoke about implements that were used to build traditional thatched cottages such as: straw, scallops and scraw.

Michael also discussed traditional calendar customs including the Wren Boys, Mumming and the Straw Boys, which are topics students will discuss in their Folklore projects.
