April 2018

April was an incredibly busy month for 4th class. We travelled to Dublin to visit Leinster House and meet Deputy Michael Healy Rae once again. We all met in Killarney railway station at 7:20 in the morning and travelled by train to Heuston Station, Dublin. This was so much fun as some of us had never been on a train or been in Dublin before. Once in Heuston station we travelled on the Luas to Abbey Street. We then walked through the city until we reached Grafton Street. We saw so many interesting buildings and monuments on the way and even identified the Spire, the Liffey and the famous Ha'penny  Bridge. We enjoyed a fantastic Viking Splash Tour before visiting Leinster House. While here we were treated like V.I.Ps and given a tour by Deputy Michael Healy Rae. We visited Dáil Éireann and saw Leo Varadkar  giving a speech! We sat in on a meeting chaired by Deputy Healy Rae and received a wonderful welcome by the Joint Committee on European Affairs. We even listened to two ambassadors from Macedonia and Albania who wish to join the EU in the future. It was an incredible experience and one we will all remember for the rest of our lives. We had a lovely lunch in McDonalds before hitting the shops on Grafton Street.  Our school trip to Dublin was brilliant and we would love to do it all over again!
