Strokestown Park

Hello again!! It’s me Harrumph Roscy. So, as I was saying yesterday (before I was rudely interrupted!) I managed to get some Easter Eggs from the local shops and supermarkets but I had to go away on a little trip (long story) so I hid them all around the beautiful Strokestown Park Gardens and Woodlands. The problem is I have to deliver them to the Easter Bunny for Easter Sunday….but I will need some help finding them as I have forgotten where most of them are!… Grown-ups are not very good at spotting Easter Eggs so I need lots of little people to help me. Some of you are very familiar with Strokestown Park’s Gardens which are looking so beautiful at the moment so you might know where all the secret hiding places are!

Every day between now and Easter Sunday, I will take a little walk around the gardens and if you watch where I walk very carefully you might spot some lovely shiny Easter eggs! Will you be able to help me find them in time for Easter Sunday? Maybe you can recruit some more detectives who can help on this virtual Easter Egg hunt ?!! That would help me so much! The gardens always look beautiful this time of year so even grown-ups (who never enjoy chocolate!) will enjoy my daily walk! Even though it’s not the same as you visiting it, it would be wonderful to have you along. When you spot the eggs, why don’t you ask a family member to help you take a screenshot of the egg on the video and share it here on Facebook or maybe email me on info@strokestownpark.ie. Don’t forget to tag #Roscy Our team here at Strokestown Park will be making a donation to a local Strokestown charity which does wonderful work. Here are the first videos! #stayconnected #irelandshiddenheartlands #irishheritagetrust #Stayathome #Easter ... See MoreSee Less

Strokestown Park

•Hello there, I am ‘Harrumph Roscy the Roscommon Bunny Rabbit let’s just say I’m a special type of Bunny with some very important jobs to do, I am so important that I am now called an Essential Worker! I’m in a spot of trouble today because I’ve lost so many Easter eggs! I’m hoping you will help me find them…or some of them? I know I hid some of the eggs in the gardens of Strokestown Park but I cannot find them. Silly me! What will I do for #Easter? Keep an eye out tomorrow and I will tell you more about my predicament and hopefully you can help me ….sorry, I must run and hide now! #stayconnected #irelandshiddenheartlands #irishheritagetrust #Stayathome #Easter ...
