2c visit Mitchelstown Caves & Galtee Mts

Our 2C class had a day out of the classroom when they went on a geography fieldtrip to the Mitchelstown Caves followed by a hillwalk to Lough Curra in the Galtee Mountains. They spent over an hour in the cave learning all about how it was formed and saw plenty of examples of stalactites, stalagmites, pillars and calcite curtains. After the cave visit, we coninued to the Glen of Aherlow and hiked from Clydagh Bridge up to Lough Curra.

Thanks to Mr. Mc Donnell & Mr. Lucey for organising the trip and to Ed Casey and Mark Leahy from TY for assisting on the day.
