National Gallery / National Museum Fourth Year Trip photo album

On Tuesday, 3rd May, Fourth Year Art pupils visited both the National Gallery and the National Museum in Dublin. Despite some disruption in the National Gallery due to the highly anticipated Da Vinci Exhibition, the pupils were treated to an impressive display of fine Irish and European works. In the National Museum, the pupils got a close-up view of Ireland's most impressive archaeological finds. The experience of both the Gallery and the Museum will be of significance when the Leaving Cert finally arrives, so the notebooks and clipboards were out in numbers. Overall, it was an enjoyable and educational afternoon for the pupils. The trip was coordinated by Mrs. McDermott and Ms. McGee.
