Last month, 72 second year Mountmellick CS students and their teachers visited nearby Emo Court House and Gardens, a trip organised by the History Department.

The students took a guided tour of the grand house, followed by a visit to the walled garden, a view of the workers houses and then a 5k walk around the lake.

Rounding off a lovely day, they enjoyed a picnic on the grounds, climbed trees and played football.

The History Dept wish to thank the OPW for their help and generosity in accommodating such a large group.
