Sixth Class

Elizabeth Fort!!!

Our trip to Elizabeth Fort

On Thursday the 28th of September the two sixth classes went on a historical trip to Elizabeth Fort in Barrack street.We were very lucky that the weather was gorgeous and everyone was very excited. Plunkett Carter a local historian and volunteer in our school showed us around Elizabeth Fort. While we were sauntering down Barrack street, Plunkett told us about the oldest house in Cork which was built in 1698. He also told us about the oldest pub in Ireland which was built in 1609. The first thing we saw was a post-box with a crown on it. Plunkett told us it had a crown because it represented England. The next thing we saw was the guillotine! My favourite part was the view we could see from the bridge. My all-time favourite was the spectacular view of St.Finbarrs Cathedral. Plunkett told us a legend that one day an angel will blow a horn and the whole world will abruptly end. Afterwards we went down to where the cannonballs were made. After having a quick look at the moulded cannonballs we moved on to the guillotine. We took funny pictures with everyone from both classes inside of the guillotine. It was great fun especially as our teachers said there would be a homework pass for the best person who looked most scared!!
