Dave brought lots of very interesting artefacts with him and very kindly allowed the pupils to pass them around and look at them.
He had lots of very interesting stories about the rising and lots of tales about the men and women who fought in Dublin 102 years ago.
Highlights of his artefacts included a rifle which was smuggled into Howth in 1914, a gas mask from the first world war and a pistol of the type that was worn by the officers leading the rising.
Our pupils were joined by the pupils of Garron N.S. and it was a pleasure to meet pupils from a school the same size as ourselves.
The visit was funded by our PTA and we are all extremely grateful to them.
