The second trip also only for teachers was to Carrickfergus, a town in the United Kingdom. Our teachers were there from the 2-5 april 2019. Carrickfergus is a large town in County Antrim which sits on the north shore of Belfast Lough, which is 18 km away. Carrickfergus was founded before Belfast and was the most important settlement due to its famous castle.
The weather during the trip was the usual which you expected in North Ireland windy and rainy. They could feel the freezing wind at the North Coast at the Giant’s Causeway, a World Heritage area of about 40,000 interlocking basalt hexagonal columns, the result of an ancient volcanic eruption, home to an old Irish legend about a giant. They will never forget either the thrill when they crossed the rope bridge at Carrick-a-rede.
