TY Trip to the Dáil
TY1, along with their History teacher, went along to the Dáil last Thursday 26th November at the invitation of local Senator, John Whelan. Welcoming the group to the Dáil, Senator Whelan arranged a guided tour of the Dáil, where the pupils were told of the building’s origins and history. We were also given an insight into the workings of the Dáil and Seanad chambers, while sessions were in progress. Afterwards we were brought to the (in)famous Dáil bar for some light refreshments, courtesy of Senator Whelan. An interesting day was had by all, giving us a better idea of how the state is run and from where.
