Students from the senior art class at St. Joseph’s Presentation Secondary School, along with their teacher, Katie O’ Reilly went to Bru na Boinne, Co. Meath as part of the history section of the leaving certificate art exam.
“The purpose of this tour was to visit the wonderful and mysterious passage grave, Newgrange built in 3200BC by Ireland’s first farmers,” Ms. O’Reilly explained.
“The pupils were given a guided tour of Newgrange kerbstones and of the passage itself.
“They were also able to witness, first hand, Ireland’s earliest examples of art in the beautifully carved, and exquisite stone impressions which decorate Newgrange, both inside and out.
“This was a valuable and beneficial experience for the senior art class,” she said.
