Fourth Class City Tour.

Fourth Class had a great day today on a city trip. The day started with a visit to the English Market where they saw the all the stalls and chatted to various stall holders. It was very quiet at the time so it was very easy to see everything. Following that they visited Bishop Lucey Park across the street. There they saw part of the old wall of Cork, the statue of the Onion Seller, the fountain with the eight swans and the various plaques on the walls.

The next stop was a tour of the City Gaol where they heard the history of the gaol and the stories of various prisoners. It was really interesting. Lunch was a picnic in Fitzgerald’s Park in glorious sunshine. The Shakey Bridge was great fun with its shakey feeling as they crossed it. The new part of the park was great fun especially the silver globes.

The final stop of the day was at The Lough where the birds were happy to be fed. There were not as many geese and ducks as usual but there were lovely swans including a black swan. There was also a pair of geese, the proud parents of five very cute goslings. They were back to school just in time to go home after a fantastic day out.
