Since October sixth class have been working on a very special history project which will be entered into a competition in the City Hall in January. Our project is about a 1904 Evening Echo that was found in our school. It is the oldest copy of the Echo available in Ireland. As part of our research we first of all studied the old paper. Each person then worked on a particularly interesting article. We looked at advertisements, war, clothing, crime, streets in Cork, money and much much more. We learned loads about life in 1904 as a result of our studies. We also took a trip to Cork City library and looked at microfilm and old newspapers. We had a very enjoyable trip to an old house in Wellington Square as part of our research. We also had great fun designing a tram and the model will be on display in the lobby complete with sound effects! We received much help from our local historian Plunket Carter and we would like to extend a very big thank you for all his help and time. We will be in the lobby with our project over the next few days and we hope to see you there.
