2nd, 3rd & 4th Class School Tour 2018

Last Friday, 2nd, 3rd & 4th had a fantastic time on their school tour to Craggaunowen and Bunratty Castle in Co. Clare. We had a wonderful day learning about the Celts and the Normans. On our first stop, we saw Crannógs, fulacht fias, ringfort, souterrain and even a replica of St Brendan’s boat. The children also visited Bunratty Castle, folk park , fairy garden and they got to meet Bunratty’s two wolfhounds Meabh and Saoirse!!

Here are some pictures from the day ……..
