Thank you to TY students Chris Thomas and Uainin Lindsey for providing the following report from the TY trip to the GPO.
“On Thursday the 22th of February, our TY class went on a history trip to the G.P.O. A lot of us had never been inside the building before so it was a new experience for a lot of us. Our tour guide seemed very interested in the events of the Rising and was always happy to answer questions. After being given our radio headsets, we walked down to a museum-like area where artefacts, videos and biographies were on display. We also got to see a memorial for the 40 children who lost their lives in the Rising. The tour guide finally left us with a film, played on a large, curved screen that covered our entire peripheral vision. It was obvious that the class really enjoyed the day. We look forward to our next day out”.
