TY Trip To Mitchelstown Caves & Galtee Mountains 12th September 2014

Our TY Geography Classes went on an expedition underground to Mitchelstown Caves and scaled the Galtee Mountains on Friday September 12th 2014. We were given a great tour of the cave system and learned about the formation of limestone caves and underground features such as stalactites and stalagmites. Following the cave visit, we drove to the north side of the Galtee mountains and hiked to Lough Curra and then scaled the cirque wall behind the lake. Tired bodies arrived back to the bus at about 4.30 and we got back to the school by 5.30.

Thanks to Mr. Donovan & Mr. Mc Donnell for organising the trip.
