As part of their History studies of pre-Christian Ireland, 1st Year class McVerry and class Roche visited Newgrange over two days this week.

The students were brought on a guided tour of the monument and then explored the Bru na Boinne grounds.

The students got to experience a recreation of the sun lighting up the chamber on the Winter Solstice and a few even got to follow the path of the light today from the floor of the inner chamber.

A very enjoyable day was had by all.

Class McVerry were accompanied by their class tutor Ms Cormac and class Roche were accompanied by their tutor Mr Callaghan. Thank you to their history teachers Ms McCarthy and Ms Doherty for organising the event and bringing the students on both days also.
