Recently our class went on a trip to Glasnevin Cemetery and the Botanic Gardens. We had a superb day out. While in Glasnevin we had the chance to visit the graves of many well known historical figures such as Michael Collins, Daniel O’ Connell and Éamon de Valera. Having studied Catholic Emancipation and the 1916 Rising in school this trip was of great interest to us.

We were really lucky with the weather on the day as it was beautiful. Following our tour we had a picnic before we headed to the Botanic Gardens. We loved wandering around the greenhouses in the Botanic Gardens. While we were there we sketched some fantastic pictures of the flowers and plants.

Overall we had a really interesting and fun filled day.
