 St. Patrick’s BNS 
The boys at St. Patrick’s BNS had a very enjoyable day on their school tour to Dublin on Wednesday last. First stop was Kilmainham Jail where history came to life as the boys experienced first hand the surroundings in which so many of our national leaders were held.

Next stop was at Dublin Zoo where the animals never fail to delight and interest

The day ended with a fun-filled tour of Dublin on the famous ‘Viking Splash’ vehicles. These vehicles travel on both land and water and we learned about Dublin and its history thanks to the witty stories and jokes told by our drivers. The highlight of the trip was a cruise in the Grand Canal Basin before we boarded our bus and headed for home.
