Ms. Dunning’s Class Trip to Dublin City

Our Dublin Tour-26ú Meán Fomhair 2013

Yesterday, a man named Thomas came to our class.He was going to be our audio tour guide.We took the nro. 49 Dublin Bus to Pearse Street. From there, we went to St.Patricks Cathedral, where we saw a monument of the Boyle family. Then we went to see a man named Seán, who was our guide for St.Patricks Cathedral.

He told us about a large stone which was covering up a well, in which St.Patrick was supposed to have been baptised people.Then we went to see the choir section, where children from a school come to sing as a daily routine. We sat on stairs, under which Seán said the Boyle family was buried. He showed us helmets and swords of soldiers and how the river Paddle affected the wall of the cathedral.

Then he told us about Jonathan Swift, who people thought was always mad and angry. After that, we went to a park, which was made and paid for by the Guiness family.We had our lunch and went to a park, which was beside Dunlin Castle. Later, we went to City Walls and then we went to City Hall, which had a ceiling covered in gold leaves and flowers as thin as paper.

At the end, we went to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells.We also saw a stone with writing on it and the oldest harp in Ireland.On the way back, my friends and I talked about how amazing the tour was.We said bye to Thomas and went back to school.We all enjoyed the tour and can’t wait for the next tour.

Wow! Over 100,000 hits.

Thanks to everyone who is using the school website. I am delighted to see how many hits it is receiving. More than 100,000 hits in the last 4 years is really impressive. Please spread the word to any interested family members or friends to check out what is going on at Scoil Maelruain Senior.

Name it!

Please could you ensure that all items of clothing have your name written on them. A lot of students lost jumpers, track suit bottoms and coats last year. This would be a great help. Thank you.

Welcome back!

We hope you are all settling back into the new school year. We would like to give a special welcome to our new 3rd class students and we look forward to getting to know you all.
