In association with Advertiser Classifieds

"Thank God for the beginning of school," exclaim parents around the country as the task of having to keep young idle minds occupied over the three months of freedom has ended.

However, the October mid-term will soon be upon us and once again parents will be exhausting their grey matter, wondering what they can do to keep their children out of trouble. Here at the we have some tips to help parents out.

1. Macnas

On Sunday October 28, Macnas will stage a Samhain parade in Galway. The world famous parade will see giants and otherworldly performers descend on the city for a night of mischief and mayhem.

2. Camping

We are lucky to live in one of the most scenic areas in the whole country and this provides plenty of opportunities for walks, exploring, and camping. Camping is always fun, no matter what age you are and is a great way of getting the children outdoors and away from the TV and PlayStation.

3. Brigit's Garden

Dress up in scary Halloween outfits and join in an afternoon of ghoulish arts and crafts, spooky storytelling, little spooks and super spooky treasure hunts, hunting for the púca, witchery in the roundhouse, apple fishing and the grand finale, everybody’s favourite – the bonfire to celebrate Samhain. There will also be storytelling with Rab Fulton. There are two dates October 28 and 29 and the event runs from 3pm to 6pm and is suitable for all ages. Book online at

So there you have it. Great tips to get your children out of the house over the mid-term break.
