This month I did a local history project on Dromagh church. I picked Dromagh church because I pass Dromagh church pretty much every day. Another reason I picked Dromagh church is because I like to know about the history around me.
This month Gemma and I did our local history project on Clonmeen Graveyard. We decided to do Clonmeen graveyard because we pass it practically every day and have always wanted to learn a bit more about it.
Sir Ernest Shackleton was born in 1874 in Kilkenny Co. Kildare. He moved to England with his parents and nine other siblings. At 16 Shackleton joined the navy. In 1901 Ernest joined Sir Robert Falcon Scott on an expedition to reach the Antarctic but returned early because of illness.
