P7 classes enjoy a trip to the Ulster American Folk Park

16th Dec 2021

In December the P7 classes all take a trip to the American Folk Park in Omagh.  The pupils and staff were given a guided tour of the park and were told lots of interesting facts about life in Famine times.  Fiadhnait Doran wrote a few lines to tell us about her class trip. 

At the Folk Park we went on a guided tour.  We visited a one roomed cabin in which a family of 12 lived.  The cabin was brought all the way from Derry to be part of the Folk Park exhibition.  Then we visited ‘Campbell’s House’ where only 5 people lived!  We visited the Schoolhouse which was built in 1845, around the start of the massive Famine! 

The guide told us that during the Famine people played a little game, if you got a card showing someone ‘Young and Rich’ you won a ticket to go on the Famine ship to America.   We went into the Famine ship but were not allowed onto the deck due of restrictions.  It was a great trip!’
