Many thanks to Ms. Ahern who organises HISTORY WALKS for classes 2nd-6th during the month of June. Knowing the history of the place where they live gives students ‘a sense of place’. Greystones is rich in local history. Students learned a great deal about the history of Greystones on these walks. You can read more about the history of Greystones on our history blog HERE
