Room 14 were on the move on 9th December! We visited the Little Museum of Dublin at St. Stephen's Green. We all found the trip very interesting. We learned all about important historical events that happened in Dublin in the past 100 years and all about famous Dublin people. There was even a U2 room with a giant guitar! The best part was you were allowed to touch everything in the museum!
We also had time to have a quick look at the live crib at the Mansion House and to make our best 'duck faces' with the actual ducks in the park! :-) It was great fun! Thanks to Ms. McGrath who very kindly came with us and Niamh, our great guide on the day.
Here's what Amy and Kayla had to say about the trip!
We had a really good time! We learned a lot about Irish history. Our very nice guide Niamh brought us around the museum. We first started in a room with photography pictures and they were of famous Irish people , Then we went upstairs to this room with lots of history in it that people had donated and Niamh told us about them. Then we went into the Green Room and we had to pick our favourite piece of history and there was a mini piano ,a grip machine , a stand that John F Kennedy used to do a speech , there was a mini Gameboy ,a hurl signed by the Dublin team in the 1990's and a little wagon from a TV show.
Then we split into two groups , The first group went to the Irish Times Room and we had these pages and we could create our own Irish times with stamps and we wrote our names with them .Then we went into the U2 and that was a really cool room it had a massive guitar and a car and we could sit in it and it was decorated and there where lots of posters of the band and they signed some of the stuff there because U2 went to see The Little Museum Of Dublin and so did Brendan O' Carroll and the Queen went to see it . After we went to see the live crib. It had a goat, a donkey and 2 sheep. Altogether it was an amazing trip and thank you to MS .McGrath, Niamh, Ms. Ryan and the people who work at The Little Museum Of Dublin !!!!
