Year 14 Dublin Trip - Partition of Ireland A2 2

Year 14 historians visited Dublin from 4th - 6th February 2015 and toured various historical sites related to their Partition of Ireland A2 2 module.

The trip proved to be really useful in examining this important period in Irish History. 

Pupils visited the National museum of Ireland,  Dublin Castle, Leinster House, the National War Memorial Gardens, the Garden of Remembrance, Croke Park and Glasnevin Cemetery.  They also went on a two hour walking tour of revolutionary Dublin.

Hopefully their increased knowledge of the events from 1900 - 1925 (and lots of revision) will ensure fantastic exam results in the summer!
