Turas Club nan Óg: Chuaigh na daltaí chuig Inis Oirr inné ar thuras lae. Fuair siad rothar ar cíos agus labhair siad as Gaeilge don lá ar fad, níos mó ná sin chuala siad go léir an ghaeilge agus í beo beathach! Is beatha teanga í a labhairt.

Borrisokane Community College students trip to Inis Oirr.
