Glasnevin Tour - 1916 Commemorations at The High School


On Friday 10 March, all Form 2 pupils went on a history trip to Glasnevin Cemetery.  Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and we all learned a lot. We visited the graves of many famous people such as Eamonn De Valera, Michael Collins, and the founder of the cemetery, Daniel O'Connell. One of my favourite graves was that of Countess Markievicz, the first woman to be elected to parliament.  We left her flowers as a tribute to the extraordinary contribution she made towards women’s rights.
