TRIP TO THE DAIL
The students in sixth year travelled to the Dail with their LCVP teacher Mr Fleming. They had a wonderful day and watched from the gallery as parliamentary questions were in session. Seeing the government work in reality made them realise the importance of government and given the implications of Brexit they really were there at a historic time. The students were delighted to meet the local Senator, Jennifer Murnane O Connor and discussed issues with her pertinent them such as rural isolation, the lack of decent transport services and facilities for young and old in the area of Hacketstown. The students learned a lot from the experience.
