Wicklows shore's have known many visitors over the centuries. They all brought their fair share of myths and legends. Createschool have taken these stories and created a series of 5 short films and boldly titled it (...drum roll...) - "The Legends of Wicklow" 

 They will be released on our YouTube channel and will be available in Irish, English and with subtitles.

The exhibition in the Mermaid Art Centre, as part of the yarn storytelling festival will feature three of these films:

A Tale to Tell - `A History of Storytelling in Wicklow'

The Quiet Pilgrim- St.Kevin and the story of Glendalough

Snakes and Sermons- St.Patrick and St.Mantán and how the county was named.

Be sure to check out some of the stars of the film (Specially created customised Lego mini-figures),  a selection of the hand made sets and several behind the scenes shots.

Createschool are grateful for the financial support of Wicklow County Council and An Chomhairle um Oideachas Gaeltachta & Gaelscolaíochta that made these films possible.
