A large human sized rabbit has arrived in Enniskerry Village just in time for Easter! This installation was created by the Children attending “Camp Creative” Easter Arts and Crafts camp being held at the School House for Art. The children aged between 5 and 13 years, learned skills in wire moulding, paper mache, painting and drawing, perspective and balance to create the rabbit – who has been nicknamed Ernie The Enniskerry Easter Bunny. He will be on display daily through the Easter Period at the Front of the School House. He is worth getting to know!
