6th Class went on their school tour on Wednesday June 19th. Firstly we went to Thomond Park where we did the tour of the museum followed by a video and tour of the dressing rooms and then went pitch-side. We learned lots about Munster Rugby and Home Advantage. After this we went to Fury Virtual Reality Centre where we “Walked the Plank” and played Paintball. On route home we stopped in “Shakin Joes” restaurant for some dinner. 

1st Class School Tour 2019

June 19th, 2019

1st Class had a super fun time exploring Bunratty Castle on their school tour last week. We began by getting a guided tour of the castle itself. We then checked out the different houses/cottages. We saw griddle bread being made over a hot plate, met an Irish Wolf hound, visited the post office and sang some songs for the school principal who told us all about the secrets of the fairies. We did a hunt in the fairy village before getting ice cream in the playground. The children even did some dancing (ie – flossing) to a few Irish jigs being played by the local fiddle player. A great day all round!
