We presented our Local History projects today. Hannah and Leo won first place for their project. Their presentation was excellent and they really knew about their topic. They presented a project about Harry Reynolds.

On our tour of Leinster house we saw an original framed copy of the Easter 1916 Proclamation of the Irish Republic. It was read out at the GPO by Pádraig Pearse and posted up around Dublin. This copy was presented to the Nation by a former President of Ireland, Seán T Ó Ceallaigh. During Easter Week 1916 he was one of the volunteers who undertook to paste up the proclamation in public areas. This copy was preserved by his mother amongst her papers.

Today the five 6th Classes went to visit the Dáil, The National History Museum and the Natural History Museum. We saw lots of interesting artifacts in The National History Museum. The Natural History Museum (The Dead Zoo) was also great fun. We saw lots of animals. Some of us thought the Dáil was boring.

We had our lunch in Merrion Square (in the park) and we had time to play in the playground!

We had a great day out! Can you name of the National Treasures in these pictures?
