Although the day began ominously with the patter of a few raindrops, the classes of 2R and 2G managed to get some of the best of the May weather last Thursday, 21st May on their hike. With a delayed start to the day, the group was put through a forced march to the Clontarf dart station to catch the 9.10am hourly train to Greystones. With minutes to spare the train was boarded and the journey to Wicklow began. The cliff walk from Greystones to Bray has some of the finest views along the coast of the Irish sea as the second years, Mr Devane, Mr O’Keeffe, Emma and Aoife soon found out on the outward trip. Spirits were high as everybody took in the sights of the spectacular sights from Dun Laoghaire to Greystones. The train was filled with excited chatter at the prospect of a day out of the school and more than a few covetous comments about the fantastic beachside mansions around Dalkey.
