St Patrick's Day Hunt

posted Mar 9, 2021, 2:46 AM by Lorraine McGovern
As there will be no St Patrick’s Day Parades this year due to Covid 19, Kildare Communities 4 Climate Action (KC4CA) have come up with a great activity for families in the county. They are having a poster hunt. In the bigger towns the posters will be displayed inside shop or business windows. In some of the smaller villages they will be in house windows. The posters will mainly be in the houses in Calverstown as we are a small village
There are 12 posters in total for you to find. They have been designed by Kildare 4 Communities 4 Climate Action group themselves and have a nature, biodiversity or action-oriented theme.
The hunt includes a challenge; on each poster there is a picture of a native Irish bird, plant or animal. You will have to identify the bird/plant/animal in the picture (hints are provided for the more difficult ones). You then put the first letters of all the pictures together in poster number order to make a word.  Send your entries (one per family) in to Kildare4climateaction@gmail.com to be in for a chance of a prize.
The posters will be up on St Patricks day and for a few days after, all entries must be in by Monday 22nd March and winners will be announced by the following weekend.
The posters will be up from the 17-21st March in various estates around the village
