Politics in Ireland: 5th & 6th Class Workshop

On Friday 29th September our 5th & 6th classes attend a ‘Politics in Ireland’ workshop in St. Laurence O’Toole’s NS, Roundwood. The workshop, hosted by Roundwood’s Active Retirement Group, in association with Unique Media, consisted of ex TD & Lord Mayor of Dublin Gay Mitchell explaining and discussing the electoral system in Ireland. The children participated in a Q&A session as well as partaking in a mock election. The children learned a great deal on the electoral system in Ireland, in particular, how much TDs earn!!
