Eurotrip – Barcelona 2018

February 21, 2018

For this year’s Eurotrip, we took our students to Barcelona for a culturally enriching week away. During their trip, they walked around the Gothic Quarter, which is the cultural hub of the city. The Gothic Quarter is surrounded by beautiful squares (plaças) and commercial areas like Plaça Reial and La Boqeria market, which is located in Las Ramblas, a must visit street in Barcelona. They visited the Picasso Museum and watched Barcelona vs Getafe at Camp Nou, one of the world’s most famous football stadiums. The students went on a very exciting Segway Tour, which some say was the best Continue Reading →

Ashbourne Allstars Crush Bitter Rivals MPW in One Sided Match

November 16, 2017

The Allstars went into the game 2nd in the league having beaten CATS College 2-0 last week.
