Thanks to HRI and Fairyhouse Racecourse, 5th and 6th class spent some time discovering Fairyhouse Racecourse today. We met the course manager Peter, the Irish Grand National winning jockey Paddy O'Hanlon and the winning horse Lord Lariet. We even got to try the horse simulator provided by RACE in Kildare. Past pupil Anna Byrne showed us everything we need to take care of, and groom, a horse.
Thanks to everyone for our treats and a lovely day.
