Some comments I came across in the St Kierans College yearbook:
On our geography trip we went to Inistioge to a place called Woodstock House and Gardens. In my opinion it was one of the best days of First Year. We went to Woodstock to go orienteering, we had to follow a map and locate sixteen flags. We were all divided into different groups and had to compete against each other as well as all the other schools. There were schools there from all over Leinster and Munster. It was a great way of revising our map work because you had to read the map properly to find the flags
