HOW THE EASTER BUNNY SAVED ATHLONE CASTLE- VIRTUAL STORYTELLING with FIA RUA
Join actor and musician, Fia Rua for a very special story of an Easter Bunny’s visit to Athlone Castle.
Most children in Westmeath know the story of the Great Siege of Athlone in 1691, where Jacobites and Williamites fought ferociously for months. Do you know what happened on Easter Sunday in 1690?
If you want to find out, join actor and musician, Fia Rua for a very special story of an Easter Bunny’s visit to Athlone Castle during this important time in Athlone’s history.
The story will premiere on Athlone Castle’s social channels on Sunday 4th April at 10am.
