Birr Castle staff member Sylvia and Miss Farrell with students during a session on ‘Senses’ .They were challenged to identify items by smell .

Students admire the impressive Castle home to six generations of the Parsons family .

The treehouse was popular with children (and staff!) of all ages !

It mightnt look very impressive but the above is a radio telescope (it doesnt detect light rather it detects other types of waves) which can ’see’ much further into the universe than the Leviathan built by The Earl of Rosse

A blindfolded student attempts to ’shoot’ classmates with a water gun by sound/hearing alone .
