Today Mr Healy took us up to Arthur’s Hill so that we could look down on Carnahaugh and take some photographs. Before we left the classroom Mr Healy put us in twos. I was paired with Eoghan.
When we got up there we could see everything in Cushendall, not just in Carnahaugh. When we were coming back down the hill again Mr Healy showed us the Rath above Coskib. We then walked down to the library to try to find out something about the history of Carnahaugh.
We looked through lots of different books at the library and anything we though was useful we photocopied it.
Shaun and Eoin went on the internet. Mrs Ann Blaney, who is the librarian, helped us look as well. Some of us found maps and others found the names of people who had lived in Carnahaugh.
I really enjoyed the day and the view from the top of Arthur’s Hill was beautiful.

At the library we started our research on Carnahaugh. We were put into pairs to look for information. Some people were looking in files, some people looked in books and others looked on the internet.
We were looking for maps, books and files about Carnahaugh and we found a lot more than that. We found the names of the people who lived there from the 1850s on, we found their hobbies, the food they ate and lots more. Luckily there was an Irish section with lots of information about Carnahaugh and the people who lived there. I enjoyed researching the Carnahaugh Clachan Project. We had a great day!
