Tranition Year Cultural Trip
On the week of the 19th of October, 33 transition year students and 3 teachers embarked on a trip around Ireland. The first stop was Dublin. Here the group had a tour of Croke Park. The students learned all about the history of the park and toured the impressive grounds. The next stop was Dublin city centre. Students went on a very interesting guided walk of the city and later that night enjoyed a pizza making class in Milano’s.
On Tuesday the students visited the Antrim coast, taking in beautiful sights such as the Giant’s Causeway and the Carraig-a-Rede rope bridge.
On Wednesday the tour visited Belfast and had a very interesting tour of the city. Later that day the group paid a visit to the magnificent Titanic museum.
The final night was spent in Galway. Amongst the sights visited were the Burren, the Poulnabrone dolmen and the stunning Cliffs of Moher.
The trip was a great opportunity to be reminded of the beautiful island we live in and the stunning attractions both natural and manmade so close to home.
