A visit To Dublin

On Wednesday Our TY class and a 5th year history class went down to Dublin to visit some Historic places which have an connection with the 1916 rising.

The first place that we visited was the graveyard that Michael Collins and Eamon De Valera is buried in. I thought this place wouldn’t be as good as our next stop but I was proved wrong. Our tour guide was really good explaining about everyone’s death and the history behind it.

After two hours of shopping we then went to Kilmainham Jail. This was the main event of the day. We got a tour of the place and visited some famous people from the 1916 rising jail cells. We also got a look of the yard were they publicly killed people who were sentenced to death. 

It was very interesting and would be lovely to visit again.
