Junior Infants school tour fun in the sun!

Junior Infants set off on their school tour on a warm sunny Tuesday to ‘Tír na Sí’ (meaning ‘Land of the Fairies’) in Watergrasshill. We were welcomed with some cool drinks and then headed off in groups on a guided trail of the open farm.  We saw where lots of herbs, vegetables and fruit are grown both outside and in the greenhouse. There were lots of wonderful animals and we were delighted to learn that some of these were rescue animals.  We got to feed some goats, rub some ponies and everyone enjoyed watching the Highland calves (which we all agreed looked like big fluffy teddies!) bounding around the field with their Mum.  We went on seach of fairies in the woodland area where we knocked on some fairy doors hoping for a reply.  There was an unconfirmed report of a gold fairy with white wings being seen!  After our walk around the farm, we got to play in the playground and crazy golf area.  Before lunch, everyone got to go on a trip in a trap with Charlie the horse who was very strong carrying us all around. We were full of energy after some snacks and drinks and enjoyed some time in the indoor soft play area.  There were lots of sleepy but very happy, content heads on the bus back to school.  If anyone is looking for any more information on Tír na Sí, there are some brochures on the information table next to the school office.
