Local history project by pupils of St. Patrick's B.N.S, Castlebar








What did we see at the Céide fields and in the resource centre?

This rock displayed in the Céide Fields Centre is over 5000 years old - older even than  the pyramids in Egypt!
There were lots of different kinds of weapons that the people used for hunting and killing.

This tree displayed in the middle of the visitors centre was also found in the bogs of Céide.
What did we learn about the people who lived in Mayo long ago? They were very primitive and they had no televisions or telephones like we have. They had no shops either and they had to kill the animals for their dinner.
