Yesterday, I enjoyed a wonderful day, with beautiful weather, up on The Mullet entertaining a group of First and Second Year secondary school students.
We took a 90-minute walk around the southern end of the peninsula, taking in Tobar Deirbhile, looking at the Napoleonic Signal Towers at Glosh and across on Achill and discussing the drowning tragedy of 1927 on Iniskea.
We were heading for the pitch at Caisleán, but fair dues to the kids, when we got there they were more interested in running down onto the beach. I certainly couldn’t blame them, with the warm day that was in it.
Later, having been well fed at Hannah’s Léim Siar B&B, I broke them into groups for a treasure hunt, based around the Blacksod pier and lighthouse area. I think they were pretty tired after all the activity and many thanks to their múinteoirí, R and L.
Yet another great day, as always on The Mullet.
