The crib was very much a part of the traditional Christmas celebrations in an Irish home. Most families had a crib, and children would collect moss to decorate it. The Baby Jesus would not be placed in the crib until Christmas Morning.
Join Kiltimagh Pet Farm to learn about animals such as sheep, goats, cows and donkeys which would be typical on a traditional Irish farm and which also form an important part of the nativity story at Christmas.
Then go to the exhibition galleries to visit the Life in the Community exhibition and learn about other Irish Christmas traditions such as Mummers and Wren Boys.
