On Thursday, 9th November 2017, the 5th year Home Economics students left Carndonagh for an overnight trip that was to include a visit to the cookery school “Recipe 4 Success” in Limerick. After a long journey we arrived at the Abbey Court Hotel in Nenagh where we received a warm welcome from the staff. We all then enjoyed dinner in the hotel and a good night’s sleep was had by all!! After a 07:15 breakfast, we left the Abbey Court for a 25 minute bus ride to the “Recipe 4 Success” cookery school in Annacotty, Limerick. This cookery school has developed a very successful Leaving Certificate Home Economics cookery skills programme. It is a highly interactive educational format which includes a mixture of demonstrations and hands on activities.
