#LC2017 #History Sarah Ní Chonghaile – Ratoath College Honestly I was happy with the DBQ but I knew before I went in that I wouldn’t get as much as I wanted written because my hand was already cramped from the week of intense writing prior!

Geography – #LC2017 – Kate L. Ryan

  Kate Ryan – Colaiste Iascaigh I’m not really sure how geography went if I’m honest. The paper seemed a bit weird in places and I’m almost certain I messed up with the timing. But all in all, it wasn’t the worst. I think nearly everyone in the room let out a sigh of relief […]

Geography – #LC2017 – Art O’Mahony

    Art O’Mahony – St Patrick’s Secondary School Castleisland So at 9.30 I eagerly began with the short questions, which for the most part were relatively straight forward.
