Who am I?
- Tyrone is the largest county in Northern Ireland.
- The Nobel-winning poet Seamus Heaney, ultimately one on Ireland's greatest treasures grew up on the edge of the Sperrins of Tyrone.
- The county is enriched with prehistoric and Celtic remains and neolithic sites include stone circles.
"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open."
Our adventure to the Somme Region will begin on the 29th of June, but even before we make it to France we will have to amazing opportunity to meet the President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins. When reaching the Somme we will visit the graves of fallen soldiers from the 32 counties of Ireland. We will pay our respects, through music and the laying down of soil that the students take from their county. We will also be partaking in numerous activities, visiting the EU Parliament, tours of the regions, visiting museums and important monuments.
