Fingal Libraries annual Bealtaine Festival was officially launched on Wednesday 20th April by Mayor of Fingal, Cllr. Seána Ó Rodaigh. Also, in attendance was Fingal County Librarian Betty Boardman. The Festival itself forms part of Ireland’s national celebration of the arts & creativity as we age and runs throughout the month of May. The Festival returns to Fingal library branches for the first time in 2 years after taking place solely as on online festival during 2020 & 2021.
This year people are invited to take part in a chair yoga 4-week course, a computer course for adults focusing on Google and its many products, an art course with John Carpenter & a series of creative writing workshops using the five senses & precious memories. The Festival will also feature a mindfulness talk, biodiversity talks by the Irish Seal Sanctuary, first aid demonstrations by St John Ambulance, a presentation by a Mintel analyst on changing exercise & fitness trends plus a talk on preparing yourself in terms of fitness to walk the Camino.
