Digital History Project

Our six P6 pupils were super excited… and nervous, showcasing their work to a packed auditorium in Ti Chulainn this morning. Their films based on historical sites in the area were very well received and many of those in attendance came afterwards to pass on their congratulations to the children on their super work.

We were delighted to welcome pupils, staff, parents and grandparents from our partner school Scoil Eoin Pol, Loch an Iuir who had made the journey to be with us this morning. They are staying in the area overnight and we will meet with them again in the morning to take them to visit the sites featured in the films.

Our neighbours from the other side of the mountain, Dromintee Primary School were also there and everyone was entertained on arrival by our fabulous musicians from P7, who really set the tone for the morning, until that was, two warriors, members of the local Fianna and friends of Chulainn himself showed up!

A big thanks to Una and Kevin for all their help with the project and for including St. Mary’s in such a prestigious event, it was a great honour to be part of it and one I’m sure the boys and girls will never forget. Remember if you are in Ti Chulainn over the weekend check out the board with the QR codes for the films and view for yourself, enjoy.
