Our Trip to DÁIL ÉIREANN

sc-dail.png

It was Monday 16, and it wasn’t a normal Monday. Today the student council were going to the Dáil Éireann. We left the school at around 9:30 am. We went on a bus into the city. It was a long trip but we didn’t get that bored. While we were on the bus we drove past Trinity College, The Guiness Warehouse and a lot of supermarkets .

When we finally arrived to the Dáil we were so excited! First we went through security then we met up with Jack Chambers . If you don’t know who he is then we’ll just tell you. He is the TD of Dublin 15. He is a member of Fianna Fáil.

The person who guided us was called Louise. She guided us to the Seanad room where there the people who decided things there were called Senators. There was a throne like chair in the center. That was the seat for the chairperson. The chairperson was in control of the meeting and decides when each person talks and how long they get to talk. Beside him there were two smaller chairs. Those were for the clerics who helped the chairperson when they need it.

After we went to the Dáil chamber. It was like the Seanad room but humongous! We also learned about how it was made. There once was a person who was the Earl of Kildare. He decided to build a huge house to show his wealth. He was going to build a mansion but the architect said it was a bad place. But he said that wherever he goes fashion follows. He married a lady named Emily and they had 19 children can you believe that!!! Soon he became the duke of Leinster . Later he died and his wife married her children’s teacher. And guess what they had 3 more kids! She sold her house and a person decided to buy it and it became the first Dáil.

At the end we were sad that we had to leave. It was a wonderful time in the Dáil. We finished by having a snack in the green area of Trinity College.

Student Council Update:

Some of our members are signing the petition for our old principal Dermot Higgins. This petition was started by Nevan Corcoran, an 11-year-old boy from Lusk, Co Dublin, Ireland, worried that America is planning to pull out of The Paris Agreement on climate change. Dermot, who was Nevan's teacher, has just finished a massive cycle around the world to highlight climate change and plans to send the petition to The White House.
