We arrived at school at 8:20 and hopped straight on the bus. We arrived in Ballintubber and were greeted by Fr. Fahey and the workers there .He told us the history about Ballintubber Abbey and brought us upstairs .They generously gave us hot chocolate and biscuits .The workers introduced themselves to us and told us all the fun facts about the Abbey.
We did some activities helping us see how we could use the gifts of the Holy Spirit .After a while they split us into groups and we all went outside to look at the beautiful sights .The workers told us some history about the outside of the Abbey. Mary, our teacher for the day, told us about Sean an Sagart’s Tree.
After a while we went back upstairs and did an activity and lit our candles .As a little gift they gave us a stone with a candle painted on it to take home with us .We said Thank you and went back on the bus .We arrived back at school and just made it on time before the school day had ended .We had a great day and really enjoyed it .
