Transition Year School Trip to Fingal County Council Swords

A group of 11 Transition Year students from St Joseph’s enjoyed a trip to the County Council Offices in Swords on Friday 16th January, 2015. The students were joined by students from Portmarnock Community School. The event - Open Street Maps - Map Lesotho Mapathon – was organised to help with the mapping of Lesotho, a small landlocked country in the middle of South Africa. Mapping is essential for vital services and amenities throughout Lesotho.
