Our students from 5th and 6th class were very privileged to attend the launch of the Irish section of the Eurovelo 1 route, which was held in Our Lady's Island and attended by the Minister of State at the Department of Transport, Jack Chambers.
'The launch event marks the culmination of many hours of work at both national and local level in ensuring the installation of dedicated signage along the full route of around 2,350km that passes through 11 counties along Ireland’s Atlantic coast.
Offering cyclists a fully signposted route along predominantly quiet, local and regional roads, Overall, EuroVelo 1, also known as the Atlantic Coast Route, is 11,150km long and runs through Norway, UK, Ireland, France, Spain and Portugal.'

How lucky are we that the launch took place in our little part of the island?!
