Join in this wonderful walk. Hear the history of the school and see the sights that Mac Diarmada and his siblings would have enjoyed on the route to and from school. The profusion of colours and wildlife in this magical spot in Spring & Summer is a feast for the senses. The purples and pinks of the Herb Robert, Rhododendron, Ragged Robin and Speedwell
