Trip to Fethard

Our 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th Classes had a tour of Fethard with Terry Cunningham on Monday September 26th. They visited the different sites, learned about how people lived in a medieval town. We were so fortunate that the weather was good on the day, and we would like to thank Terry Cunningham for stimulating such interest in the children as they thoroughly enjoyed it.

Here are some pictures of the day:

Back to the Walls Tour

Back to the walls tours together with the heritage council scheme are providing a tour of Fethard medieval town with Terry Cunningham this Monday September 26th at 11am. Class groups 3rd to 6th will be availing of this opportunity.

Fethard is a ’living museum’. You have a complete Norman Walled Town , still set in the countryside with a number of its original features still in use.

So a complete history lesson of the medieval period is laid out in front of the students. They can see the real thing ,still in place and in use after 800 years !
