After a slightly delayed 8:30 (9:00) start, we were off to the wilderness that is Coláiste Chú Chulainn, Gaoth Dobhair. ‘Buachaillí agus cailíní’, alike went ‘chun Gaeilge a fhoghlaim le spórt agus spraoi’.

The first stop was Glenveagh, where we walked and walked, and walked some more in the sun to Glenveagh castle. There was a lot of ‘uachtar reoití’ bought and we toured the gardens. Then it was onto the bus and on to the ‘tithe’ where we were greeted by our ‘Bean an Tís’ and a lovely lunch. After lunch we had ‘ranganna’ in the sun with the company of some questionable dogs….The céilí of musical statues and the €20 ‘duais’ was won by a mad shuffle up and down the hall.

Junior Pupils Go Back in Time with UAFP

Ulster American CCS Trip

On Wednesday, 16th May, nineteen students from 2nd and 3rd year went to the Ulster American Folk Park on an educational trip. The lucky students were transported back in time to experience the lives and journeys of Irish people during the Famine. They watched the work of a blacksmith and boarded the reconstructed 'Brig Union' ship to imagine the journey from Ireland to America during the 1800s. Most students agreed they were more appreciative of their homes and modes of transport today, although the hearth cooked scone bread went down a treat! A great time was shared by all.
