A Childs Day in the Big House

Schoolroom in the Big House

Last Saturday we held our first event for Heritage Week in the County Museum. It was attended by many of the local children and was a huge success. A section of the schoolroom in the Big House was recreated with period toys, furniture, childrens clothes etc. Helen Moynihan played the role of the Governess "Miss Stevens" and took the children through the day of a child in the big house - breakfast, clothing, lessons, lunch, play etc. Willie Fraher went through the clothes children would have worn, as well as books and scrapbooks they would have used. Darren Moynihan demonstrated a simple form of moving pictures which the children were able to make.

A special thanks to all the museum staff and committee members for the research and time given to ensure the day went off smoothly. Well done to all concerned. To view more images visit us on facebook
