For the last few weeks 4th class have been taking part in an amazing project with Richmond Barracks . They have been learning about the history of Inchicore through drama . The project has focused on Richmond Barracks building and goldenbridge cemetary .  We have looked at the arrival of the first British troops in the 19th century , Body snatchers in the graveyard,  a hot air balloon arriving in the barracks ( one of the first ever in Ireland ) , the 1916 rising prisoners being held in the barracks and lots more fascinating history.
