Laois Geology & Minecraft Rocks

For National Heritage we had Michele Castiaux from the Irish Geological Association presented a fun and informative workshop on geology and Irish rocks. We also talked about the popular game Minecraft and the rocks used in that.

We had a great time and would recommend people to check out Michele’s website https://www.geologyandenvironment.com/
