Our first trip of semester 2 will be to Trim in the county of Meath. It will take place on Saturday 1st March. The bus will be leaving the UCD main Bus stop terminus (often called the Xpresso Car Park) at 9:30am and will be returning at about 6pm.
The following is the proposed plan of events:
We will be visiting Trim Castle first for a guided tour around one of Ireland's most significant castles. We will be having a quick lunch following our tour of the castle. I advise that you bring packed lunch but we should also be stopping at a petrol station or shop if possible. Afterwards we will be heading to the Spire of Lloyd and Loughcrew where we will be hopefully joined by Prof. Muiris O' Sullivan for a guided tour.
The total charge will be €5 which is to be given to Emmet, our trips and tours officer, before a place can be reserved. For those of you doing Prof. Tadhg O’Keeffe’s module ‘Medieval Castles’, this trip will be of particular interest to you.
