Pupils in Rang a Cúig and Rang a Sé had a visit from History expert Aidan Dockery. Aidan has one of the best collectioins of Irish stamps, coins, artefacts and commemorative booklets in the country. The pupils had been studying about World War 1 and Aidan took us on an unforgettable journey back in time. He recounted how his uncle Joe was a soldier during the war and was killed at the Battle of the Somme. He started the session with a chilling recitation of the poem The Box by Laschelles Ambercrombie on the danger of war and how it hurts everybody it comes into contact with. Aidan also gave a very insightful account into the lives of the signatories of the 1916 Rising.
