In Pictures: WAHS Visit to Jerpoint Park

The visit to Jerpoint Park - the Lost Town & Country Experience - was just that, an experience!. We followed Joe and listened to the story of the town, and the pilgrims coming to see the tomb of St Nicholas, Bishop of Myra. We walked in their footsteps, trying to imagine the main street, the Market Square, the mills that 300 years ago, made Jerpoint such an important, thriving town.
