We made the most of our last day in London. Walking through the gates of Lord’s, we were ready for an extensive tour of the home of cricket. The view of the pitch from the Long Room, the Players’ Change Rooms with their detailed honour boards and the actual Ashes were of great interest to the boys but the highlight was the pod shaped Media Centre.

After a cracking breakfast in the beautiful Radisson Blu Vanderbilt, we all set off for Palm Sunday Mass at Westminster Cathedral. Funnily enough we bumped into the Loreto girls after Mass and exchanged travel stories. The boys then divided into groups and armed with maps and underground passes became serious sightseers in London. The Changing of t

On the bus early, we travelled for an hour before we descended on a roadside inn for breakfast. The proprietors had never served so much breakfast to so many in such a short time. They did a marvellous job and congratulated themselves by clapping and cheering after the final service. Hunger sated, we drove north past the majestic Benbulbin, part of
