Warriors & Hurlers

Warriors & Hurlers

Our new hands-on workshop 'Warriors & Hurlers' gives primary school groups the chance to handle replica items and try on clothes and armoury similar to those which the legendary Cú Chulainn may have worn!

One of the most famous legends in Irish mythology is ‘The Táin’ with its central character Cú Chulainn. ‘The Táin’ provides evidence of the ancient origins of hurling, where skill on the hurling field is a sign of skill as a warrior. Who better to illustrate this than Setanta - a master hurler who used his sliotar and camán to slay the hound of Chulainn and receive the new name of Cú Chulainn.

This workshop gives children a hands-on, educational and fun experience of what it may have been like to be Ireland’s greatest hurler, hero and warrior.

€8 per student
Duration: 2 hours
Recommended for 7 - 10 years (1st - 4th class)
