Have you taken the Fingal Libraries Ardgillan Story Trail yet? writes Rose Barrett.

It starts at the entrance to the walled garden and continues along the forest trail in the beautiful surroundings of Ardgillan Castle (near Balbriggan) telling the Ravenous Beast story. This is a must see for young readers!

Ardgillan Castle & Demesne boasts spectacular views, forest walks, a children’s playground, manicured gardens as well as an abundance of open space for children to run and play and enjoy being outside, 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, and has also done a book-reading and draw-along which are recorded in Ardgillan Castle, and available to view on the below links!

Pages of Niamh’s wonderful book are mounted on custom made posts dotted all along a forest walking trail adding an element of delight to the already glorious surroundings.
