On March 14th, classes from 3rd to 6th were invited to the library to have a historical workshop. The children learned about famous Irish rebellions from the 1798 Rebellion, to the Fenian attack on the barracks in Kilmallock, to the 1916 Rising and many more. They were given the opportunity to try on the attire of the soldiers who went into battle. The children were also fascinated to learn about the various weaponry that the soldiers would have used in battle.
