On the 12th of April (2016) all 5th year History students and some of the 3rd years headed off on a history trip for the day. The morning was spent in Glasnevin Cemetery where the students went on a guided tour, learning about some great historical figures.
During the tour they visited the graves of Charles Stewart Parnell, Michael Collins and Eamon de Valera to name but a few. They then explored the interactive museum in Glasnevin afterwards.
The afternoon was spent in Dublin City Centre, where students took part in a two hour walking tour of the city, learning about the 1916 Rising. As they walked the streets, the students heard the various stories of what had happened in those parts of the city in 1916. An enjoyable and informative day was had by all.
