Geography Field Trip

The Ursuline Leaving Cert Geography classes headed to Co Clare on Tuesday, 22 September to complete the Field Study element of their course. Two busses, containing the three Sixth Year classes, started out before 8 am, with social distancing maintained during the trip. First stop of the day was the pre-Christian burial site of Poulnabrone Dolmen. Then it was on to the Ailwee Caves to see the unique limestone formation. The spectacular Cliffs of Moher are always an important stopping off point on this annual jaunt for Sixth Year geographers. Lahinch was where the students conducted their investigation on the processes of coastal erosion, measuring and recording their findings. Despite the mixed weather the students and their accompanying teachers Ms Tuohy, Ms Callinan and Ms O’Sullivan had a great day out and enjoyed the outdoor learning experience.
