Harolds Cross Latest News

Harold’s Cross Halloween Hooley: The imaginative wizard Eoin Bairéad and his ever creative daughter Clíodhna have assembled an on-line Halloween special for the VIP’s of Harold’s Cross who are banished from the traditional “trick-or-treat” excitement at Halloween 2020.

To get yourself in the mood, make sure to tune in to the on-line Hooley. The preparations have already started. On Sat Oct 31st from 11.30-12.30 am you can join Niki and Tanya Collier online to draw a funny, silly or scary mask.

The workshop takes an hour. If you do not have materials? Just ask Niki what you might need. You can register here.
