Today Andrew from The Irish Fisheries Board visited our school. He gave a presentation to the pupils in the senior room about life in a river. He then went to a local river and he collected various types of fish, insects and pond life.
He showed us a tiny brown trout and he spoke about it.
He then showed us a much larger eel.
We even got to touch the eel. To us he felt very slippery and slimy.
We also examined other types of life from the river.
When we were finished exploring and examining the pond life Andrew returned all of the species to the river where he had found them. Our thanks to Andrew for a very informative presentation.
