On Thursday the 26th of March Transition Years, along with Ms McFarland and Ms Fox went on a history trip. Our first stop was the Athy Heritage Museum where we found out about The Gordon Bennet Road Race, the 1798 Rebellion, WW1 and Ernest Shackle ton. I enjoyed seeing how these events affected Athy and the surrounding areas. Following a stop for lunch at White-water we headed to the Curragh of Kildare. After a quick kick about we were given a tour of the Curragh Camp museum. There was plenty to see here the highlight being one of the armed Rolls Royce cars Michael Collins travelled in. This was a most interesting trip and we all learned a great deal, not only about Ireland, but also about our local community.
