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 !

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