3rd & 4th Class Historical Tour of Bartlemy Village
3rd and 4th class enjoyed a historical walk around Bartlemy village with John Arnold on
Wednesday 14th of September. We started below TVM at the 'Path Field' where people in times past
made their way from more remote townlands to Sunday mass. We made our way up through the
village as John recounted stories of people and building from times past. We learned about the
'Tailor's House', the old shops, post office, pubs, 'Band House' and the Fair Field. John told us that
it hosted one of the largest horse fairs in Europe and is it claimed that Napolean's horse
Marengo was bought there!
A big thank you to John so being so generous with his time and expertise. To read more about our
field trip take a look at John's article from the Echo in the link here.
