Mar­tians in the Marshes

The Argus - - NEWS -

A Mar­tian who crash landed at Marshes Shop­ping Cen­tre was helped by Dun­dalk children who had been work­ing hard to build a new space­ship for the re­turn jour­ney as part of the Hal­loween Fun at Marshes.

Space­ships, built by pupils from St Ni­cholas Monastery Na­tional School, St Joseph’s Na­tional School and Castle­town Girls School were on dis­play at the Cen­tre.

All were built from re­cy­clable ma­te­rial and the best will re­ceive a €350 prize for their schools’ art depart­ment.

There was also a dis­play board where children are record­ing sight­ings of the Marshes Mar­tian.

It was all part of the Hal­loween fun at Marshes, where there were free children’s ac­tiv­i­ties from Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 27 to Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 31, be­tween 12.00 noon and 4.00pm each day.

The ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded mak­ing slime, alien head­bands, pa­per plane wreaths, trick or treat bags, pom-poms and more space­ships.

‘ This is our sec­ond ma­jor event of the sea­son at Marshes Shop­ping Cen­tre and we are also look­ing for­ward to host­ing more fam­ily events,’ said Aoife Ker­ley of Marshes Shop­ping Cen­tre.

Hal­loween events in­cor­po­rated the Marshes Lit­tle Mon­sters kids club.

The free kids club runs on the last Satur­day of each month at the food court.
