On Friday May 11th our first year classes loaded up for a day of adventure in the Ballyhass lakes activity centre. To say it was a wet dreary morning would be an understatement! The rain was biblical. We drove through floods and hailstones but remained hopeful that the Met Eireann forecast for the day to brighten would actually materialise.
Last Friday our Second Years went back in history and visited one of Ireland’s medieval gems; Kilkenny City . Following a very wet start we arrived in Kilkenny at 11am and took a very enjoyable train journey around Kilkenny city which highlighted the key historical fortifications of the walled town as well as providing us with a commentary on Kilkenny through the ages
Our 1st year girls did themselves, and their school very proud today. We travelled to the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght to play their semi final first against Sacred Heart Secondary School, Tullamore.
