On Friday the girls from 4th and 5th were very lucky to have a visit from Heritage Expert Aidan Dockery. He had a huge array of artefacts, books and historical objects from a wide variety of historical times. Aidan’s uncle, Joseph Dockery, was killed in World War 1 and we were honoured to see some of his possessions from his time at the front. This was a unique opportunity for the girls to see and experience the lives of people in the past as well as famous events such as World War 1 and the Easter Rising. Aidan was very impressed with the girls’ knowledge especially the insightful questions they asked. He complemented them all on being such a great audience.
