Primary School History Resources
Introducing our wonderful history workbook ‘Imagine A Castle’. We hope you and your class will have lots of fun exploring its pages and carrying out the fun and interactive’ Over to You!’ tasks at the end of each section. The workbook will be distributed to schools in County Galway through Galway County Library, mobile school’s library service with copies also available at Kylemore Abbey or the Heritage Office, Galway County Council. We would love to see some of the castles and other things you create, please send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and if you like we will share them here to inspire other schools!

Portraits at Kylemore Abbey
A video to accompany the Stories Through Pictures section of our Imagine A Castle workbook. We look at some of the portraits we are lucky to have here in Kylemore, an oil painting and a video of Margaret Henry and a sculpture of Mitchell Henry. We discuss what is unique about each of them and what we can learn from them.
