Trip to Kilmichael Ambush site


The 3rd to 6th class went to the ambush site in Kilmichael on Monday 6th March with Charles Mccarthy & Conor O Driscoll. They visited the monument and the house where the boys went after the ambush. They saw the bog where 3 of the boys of Kilmichael were temporarily buried- today there is a cross standing in the bog.

A big thank you to Charles, Conor and Claire O Brien for bringing the children & for their wealth of knowledge!!
