History Trip

Children from third to sixth class travelled to Cahir Castle and the Swiss Cottage with Ms Whelan and Mr McHale last Thursday.  

They enjoyed the Medieval Castle with its battlements and dungeons.  They saw all the rooms in the Swiss Cottage with the printed wallpaper and different shaped windows.
They admired the autumn colours on the walk between Cahir Castle and the Swiss Cottage.  They collected leaves and conkers.
Fifth and sixth class saw an otter while third and fourth saw a grey squirrel.
They enjoyed their day.
