Spring H’artlight

Returns to Roscrea

After a successful second outing in January celebrating the Winter H’artligh, we return to celebrate the Spring H’artlight on Saturday the 28th of April at the Coláiste Phobal, Roscrea from 9.30 to 12.30.

H’artlight is a gathering of local people who wish to express themselves through art. H’artlight is not an art class, workshop or seminar; it is a chance for people to come together and express our creative soul, and very importantly, have fun. H’artlight is free, all are welcome and there will be some art materials to share but please feel free to bring your own. If you have further queries please contact Dave Carter 0505 23379 or Lorcan Kenny 0505 23939. H’artlight is supported by North Tipperary LEADER Partnership and the Coláiste Phobal.
