Learn more about the folklore, mythology and storytelling of the farming communities over hundreds of years, and hear about the fascinating rural traditions that have been preserved and passed down through many generations Encounter traditional farm animals and experience the celebration of Irish culture in the Teach Ceoil, or trace your Westmeath roots in the Genealogy Centre.
