On one of the most beautiful days of the year, our 2nd year history students visited Strokestown House. Students of JC History must study the Famine in Ireland. Our students agreed that it was hugely beneficial to their knowledge and understanding of this period in our nation’s history to visit this unique attraction.

 

Our day began with a tour of Strokestown House. We followed that with a visit to the famine museum and after some lunch we explored the amazing gardens. Our students received huge praise from American and English tourists for their exemplary behaviour, the quality of their questioning and interest shown throughout the tour.
