Thirty-eight 4th year students from The Institute made a day trip to Belfast on Monday 30 November to The Titantic Experience where they discovered the history behind the voyage of the famous ocean liner.
Accompanied by 4th Year Head Orla Ni Shuilleabhain, 6th year deputy principal Richard Whealans and director Una Kearns, the group enjoyed a fact-filled day as they made their way through the different exhibitions including from Boomtown Belfast, The Shipyard, The Launch of Titanic, The Fit-Out, Maiden Voyage, The Sinking and The Aftermath.
Following The Titanic Experience, the students visited the Titanic Dock and Pump-House which is the only authentic Titanic landmark in the world.
Here, the students got a guided tour and braced the cold weather to get to stand inside the famous dry dock.
Before heading home to Dublin the 4th year students were given a Belfast city bus tour including a stop off at the peace wall in West Belfast where they were invited to add their own messages to the many others adorning the wall.
