A huge thank you to Mr Nolan and especially Corporal Leon Deere (Past Pupil of St Fiacc’s N.S) for organising an amazing trip to the Curragh Army Base for 6th class students. We saw Michael Collins’ armoured Rolls Royce car along with a massive display of military weapons and got a tour around the modern history museum. Children got some hands on action with ration packs, weapons and equipment as well as having a a tour of a very modern and sophisticated army tank. Corporal Deere and his colleagues really put on a great show for all the children and it was both interesting and lots of fun. Children got a great appreciation of conditions and life in the army. It was a super experience for all!
