Here in Harold’s Cross NS we feel very proud that we were the first site for the School of Irish Archaeology. Our Archaeology dig site beside the AstroTurf is transformed into a Viking house dig every September and October for our third class students as they learn all about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Viking Times in Ireland with Mark Kelly (or “Mark the Archaeologist” as he is know to our senior students!)

The classes also go on trips to famous historical sites and museums around Ireland including Trim Castle, Glendalough and Dublinia.




Mark also runs an Easter and a Summer camp here in Harold’s Cross NS. Check out the SIA website for more information:
