Have you ever wanted to find buried treasure?

Here is an opportunity that may come once in a life time. Real buried treasure can be found on the Dingle peninsula. Artist Kate Shelley has made a bejewelled silver amulet. Kate & fellow artist Clodagh Murphy will be burying the treasure in a secret location on the Dingle peninsula as part of their art exhibition in feile na bealtaine. Kate & Clodagh were inspired by the Kit Williams book of the 1970's.  

The clues to the treasure's location will be revealed at the exhibition opening on Friday 2nd May, 6.45pm,  An Tig cruinn (the round house) A Lab, John Street, Dingle. The clues will be in the pictures & you will also be able to buy a small booklet which will help you on your search. When deciphered, the clues will lead one lucky detective to a beautiful & weighty, solid silver amulet, with rich garnet & iridescent labradorite gems. The magnificent piece is strung with beads of garnet & lava! A truly unique & magical prize for any intrepid explorer. The clues will be cryptic, but able to to be solved by child & adult alike. Kate & Clodagh hope that the treasure will be found by the end of the bank holiday weekend, so that somebody will have an unforgettable end to a very good festival weekend.

The race is on... Let the adventure begin!
