Nostalgic fun with table top games in Abbeyleix

Anyone with a nostalgic interest in children's table top games like Monopoly or Scrabble should get to Abbeyleix this week as part of Heritage Week.

From Tuesday August 23 to Saturday August 27 Heritage House will host an intriguing interactive exhibition of a wide range of original and reproduction children's table top games from 1840-1990.

Entitled 'very interactive nostalgic toy and game exhibition' children and adults can play and learn about the games.

Many of these toys have unusual stories behind their beginnings and they will be on display in Ireland for the first time.

There are prizes on offer for the best period costume. The exhibition is suitable for all ages and is on from 1pm to 4pm each day.
