In 5th and 6th Class we have been learning about the islands of Ireland and today we had a visitor from the Aran Islands who told us all about school over there. The school on Inis Mór has only 63 pupils. It takes eight minutes to get over there by plane and fifty minutes by boat. The island of Inis Mór (meaning the big island) is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland. It is well known for its different monuments of Christian, pre Christian and Celtic mythological heritage. Dun Aengus is a fort on a cliff on the island. There are some cars but most people cycle. Tourists can hire a bike or go around on a bus or horse and trap. The population of Inis Mór is approximately 845. The island is 31 sq km in size and is located off the coast of Galway Bay. On a sunny day you can see it across from Galway Bay.
