6th Class History Project

Mr. Coyle’s Class History Project

Mr Coyle’s sixth class boys had an interesting time engaging in a history project with the DCU St. Patrick's Campus History Department. The college lecturers and students brought the class to the Church of Ireland graveyard on Church Avenue. The boys were tasked with identifying certain headstones and garnering information on these people. The lecturers provided an abundance of interesting information about these people and about the history of Drumcondra.

Several weeks later the boys went to the college to discover more about the people they had found and the conflicts and the activities that they had been involved in.  The college provided a number of interesting resources that the boys could discuss and examine. The boys really enjoyed the learning experience that the college had helped to create and were amazed to discover the history that lay on their own doorstep!!
