Shannaghmore Trip 1 - Day 3

Day 3 - … started with a bang! The sun was up and the sky was blue, but the CPS crew were definitely starting to wain. Unbelievably no one was awake at 0730, so Mr D had to take dramatic action …. the lights were switched on … the bell was rung and the sleep had to be rubbed from our eyes!

Shannaghmore Trip 1 - Day 2

Day 2 began at the crack of dawn … teeth brushed, showers (despite protests!), change of socks and a healthy breakfast …. much to Miss Armstrong's delight! All aboard … for the move to Tollymore Forest Park, where the team was lulled into a false sense of security …. 'and we only have to crawl under a bench!!'
