On Friday October 8th, twelve Transition Year pupils from St. Columba's headed west for Connemara and Dog's Bay to partake in a Coastwatch Survey. The survey involved patrolling a 2.5 km stretch of coastline, analysing the plants and animals of the shore. Hamish Law described the survey as "a mesmerising walk along the coast watching the waves pummelling the rocks". There was also some time for some R & R, with the pupils being treated to a Murder Mystery Tour on the Saturday evening. The event was organised by Mr Sherwood who was accompanied by Mr. Gibbs on the tour. Below is a series of photos, taken by the pupils, of their work on the shore.
