Cuairt ón staraí áitiúla Úna Walsh/ Visit from Úna Walsh to Rang 4/5

18ú Eanáir 2023

Bhí tráthnóna iontach sultmhar againn inniu le hÚna Walsh. Rang 4/5 had a very informative and enjoyable afternoon with Úna Walsh speaking about Sliabh Gullion, passage tombs, townlands etc.  Our townlands date back over 800 years when Ireland was only Irish speaking. It is so important that we learn our townland and understand it’s meaning. The passage tomb on Sliabh Gullion and Annaghmare Court Cairn that is right beside Múinteoir Thérèse’s house both date back over 6000 years and are older than the pyramids of Egypt. Úna will be back again next week to talk about the Hannah ship that set sail from Warrenpoint in 1849 and was shipwrecked resulting in many deaths of local people. The children really enjoyed the session and were full of questions. Go raibh céad míle maith agat Úna. Ag dúil go mór leis an seachtain seo chugainn.
