  • Clarin College Athenry visited Woodlawn on 25th February 2020. Our TYs are doing research on Woodlawn House estate for their history project. We were met by Tom Seale and Bernie Doherty who took us around. We really enjoyed the visit and our students were given a lot of information regarding the estate. Thanks to Tom and Bernie for sharing their knowledge and giving us their time.
