Today we took a class trip along with Mr. Morrissey's class, 'The Daffodils' to see Donnelly's Hollow. We have been learning all about the local hero in History recently and we had a great time going to see the site where the famous fight against the British boxer George Cooper took place. We explored the surrounding area, climbed the mounds and walked in Donnelly's footsteps, counting them as went went. It's hard to believe that 20,000 people gathered here to witness Donnelly's victory.
We took some rubbings of the monument while we were there!
We popped across the road to visit the Military Cemetery. Here we were very respectful as we walked around the graveyard. We took rubbings of some of the headstones here also.
