Here is a photo of us taken at the beginning of the school year.



A Project we’re doing!

We are doing a big project on the streets of Castlebar and we have learned a lot of new information. Some people from Castlebar have come in to talk to us and tell us things they know. Ernie Sweeney came to our school and brought us on very good tours around Castlebar. We learned some interesting facts about the streets and what they were like many years ago. Here are some photos of us on tour.


Here we are in Cafolla’s take away on Castle Street. If you look closely you can see some lovely photographs of Castlebar in the old days. Some people don’t know that these photos are here because they don’t look when they go in. The next time you go to buy a burger make sure you have a look at them!


Here we are up at the mall looking at the nice fountain. We brought our copies and pencils so that we could take notes of what Ernie was saying.
