our local area
Everybody has been working very hard as we have been learning about our local area of Cross. We have visited local sites such as Cross East graveyard, the old church and castle, the mill, the church and Dowagh House. We completed a local trail and we recorded our visits by writing stories, drawing illustrations and even making models. We studied the geography of our local area by taking a look at the map and using it to explore the physical features of Cross as well as categorising our families into townlands. Many thanks to two members of our community, Johnny Lavin and Hugh Hennelly, for kindly sharing their extensive local knowledge with us.
