Walk in the Woods: St. Patrick’s Chair and Well

With St. Patrick’s Day approaching, why not take a virtual walk in the Patron Saint’s footsteps through these woods in Augher, County Tyrone. In this delightful ‘Walk in the Woods’ you will find St. Patrick’s Chair and Well.

According to local folklore, wishes made while sitting on the chair will come true within days!

NI Science Festival: Let Your Mind Wonder

The Northern Ireland Science Festival continued this week with a multitude of events to watch again, including a conversation with astronaut Tim Peake. Here is one last event to catch before the Festival ends tomorrow. Physics Professor Harry McMahon brings us science through art with an online exhibition of paintings portraying humankind’s attempt to make sense of an incomprehensible, chaotic world. The exhibition pays tribute to pioneers of science such as Leonhard Euler, Dorothy Hodgkin, Belfast-born Nobel Prize for Physics nominee J S Bell and William Campbell.
