Lissadell House

4th Class went on a school tour to Lissadell house.

They spent some time learning about Robert Gore Booth, Henry Gore Booth, Constance Markievicz and the connection W.B. Yeats had with the famous house.

We found it a very interesting topic to study as it covered a lot of historical subjects- such as the Famine and the 1916 Rising.

The tour to the house exceeded all expectations. The children were fascinated by the marble floor that was actually 350 million years old, the stuffed bear (that changed direction every day!), the paintings on the pillars, the figurines from the Battle of Waterloo, and especially the servant entrance and servant quarters.

Here are some pictures of our trip.

When we returned to the classroom the children created projects based on what they had learned.
