Tour to Dublinia & Leinster House

Pupils in the Senior Room had a wonderful day recently when they travelled to Dublin with Ms. Nolan and Ms. McGreevey.  Their first stop was at Dublin, where they were given a costumed guided tour of the Viking and Medieval History exhibitions.  They also visited the two displays in the History Hunters Exhibition.   Following lunch, they then travelled to Dáil Éireann, where they were given a guided tour of Leinster House.  It was a great day and one that made a big impression on the children.
