Fifth and sixth classes recently went on a field trip to Carrowmore Tombs, one of the four major passage tomb complexes in Ireland.
Our tour guide, Padraig, began by showing us around the interpretive centre and explaining the history of the area. We then embarked on a guided tour of some of the ancient burial sites.
We learned many interesting facts about the lives and burial practices of the first settlers in our area. We are now looking forward to learning more about the Neolithic Age in our history lessons.
