On Monday the 18th of May, all the 4th classes set off on a trip to Enniscorthy. We have been learning all about the 1798 rebellion and were very excited to go to see the 1798 Centre and Vinegar Hill. We had a tour of the centre, we saw a reenactment of the battle of Vinegar Hill but managed to get out safely. Then we dressed up as rebels and Red Coats.
After lunch we headed up to Vinegar Hill. We learnt that the hill was probably formed by a volcano, that the windmill on top was used as a jail by the rebels during the rebellion,that the rebels lost the battle of Vinegar Hill and that some rebels escaped through Needham's Gap.
We quickly retreated to the bus due to a rain shower and had great fun in the playground when the sun came out!Last modified on
