www.creativeardagh.com) in 2011 we have been celebrating Halloween with our family event Ardagh School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We are now at Year 5 of this event, loosely based on Harry Potter with 'students' sorted into houses based on our local legend: Midir, Etain, Fuamnach and Aengus. We practice our dark arts on black paper in the artroom and have banished many a ghost with our phantom fizzing potion. This year we continue to add in more fun for all ages to this event over the bank holiday weekend and on Halloween itself.
We are delighted to be able to expand the celebrations with the support of Longford Arts Office to a week long festival which includes Gothic writing workshops for adults and teens (11 to 14), an art day camp for children, a teen art workshop, photography exhibitions by Co. Longford TY students assisted by Shelley Corcoran and a walk up Brí Leith, home of Midir who had close links with the ancient festival of Samhain.
