The Tain March- 3rd Class warriors

Third class enjoyed a recent workshop reliving the story of Queen Maeve and the brown bull of Cooley. Queen Maeve and her warriors made a visit to our school on their community walking festival to celebrate and promote the epic tale of Táin Bó Cúailnge (The Cattle Raid of Cooley).

The walkers began in Rathcroghan in Co Roscommon, where Queen Maeve began her quest for the Brown Bull of Cooley. We thoroughly enjoyed the reenactment of this story outside Moorehall lodge followed by generous refreshments. A memorable day for all!

Having a rest after all the excitement!
