Last Friday was a very exciting day for pupils from 3rd to 6th class as they travelled to Rathcroghan Heritage Centre to greet Queen Medb and her warriors as they set out on their long walk across the country. Earlier in the week the children took part in a workshop with Heritage Expert Chris, where they learned all about the ancient saga, of Queen Medb of Connacht’s desire to possess the Great Brown Bull of Cooley, Donn Cuailnge. In memory of this legendary event, an annual Táin March takes place, starting at Rathcroghan. The boys and girls looked spectacular in their costumes and the history of the Táin March came alive for them for an afternoon in Tulsk.
The sun shone on us as we walked to school on National WOW Day. What a great way to start the day.
A big congratulations to all our prize winners in the Scríobh Leabhar competition run by the Carrick-on-Shannon Education Centre. The children had to design and write an Irish story book. They are pictured below receiving their certificates of achievement.
