MNS Tour of Leinster: We’re home!

What a great adventure it’s been! Starting out as a Tour of Wicklow and suddenly realising we’re capable of way more than that, to taking a detour in Tinahely and continuing on our journey around Leinster.

We completed in access of 650 kms.

Thanks to the parents, the Board of Management, siblings, pets but most importantly the pupils of Moneystown National School who walked, jogged, ran, hiked, cycled, skateboarded, scooted and even SWAM! their virtual way around Leinster, well done all.

Please see below both videos of our adventure as well as the final 3 destinations on our trip.

We had 5 past pupils involved in the team & management: Cian McHugh, Gavin Fogarty, Niall Gaffney (all Class of 2013) as well as Liam Kenna & Michael Kinsella (Class of 1996). Well done all. #AnTócharAbú
