Ms Flood's class visit South Dublin County Council

On Wednesday 6th November Ms. Kennedy organised for Ms Flood’s class to visit the South Dublin County Council Offices as part of their Tallaght project work. It was a great experience for the children and they really enjoyed it. Holly Johnston and Ryan Murtagh have described the day.

We left the school and on the way we walked over the blue bridge and then walked through the square. After that we passed the library, the theatre and Rua Red. Then we saw a big building and it was South Dublin County Council.

When we were in the building we sat down on black chairs. The mayor, Dermot Looney, walked in and we all said hello. After we went into a chamber. Elaine told us a bit more about Tallaght. We all had microphones which we weren’t allowed to mess with. After that the mayor asked us questions, what we liked about Tallaght and what we wanted to improve in Tallaght. Ryan and I both asked three questions each. Chloe asked the mayor how heavy his golden chain was and she got to try it on. Sean asked if he could sit in the mayors chair and he got up and sat in it.

At the end we all got a picture with the mayor and we got to touch his golden chain. Then we got to high-5 him! He gave us some certificates and then we walked back to the school and had our lunch. It was a brilliant day!
