Our school is situated right in the centre of Cork City. This gives us some wonderful educational advantages as many of the city's wonderful resources are within walking distance. Our classes have regular visits to the Central Library, City Hall, the Crawford Gallery and U.C.C..
All the more reason for our classes to learn all they can about their city. There is no better man than Cllr Kieran McCarthy for a history walk in Cork, guaranteed to be packed with entertainment, information, wonderful stories and useful facts.
This year he guided Fourth and Fifth classes through the Shandon area on a brilliantly sunny day. Shandon steeple was seldom out of our sight and despite its clocks being mended, they still tell different times, allowing it to live up to its traditional name of Four Faced Liar.
