In Mr. Maguire’s 3rd class we have been building Tallaght village. We wanted to make it as it looked 100 years ago. We spoke to historians, looked at maps, used old photos and recounts and spoke to locals about what it was like.

We used the maps to build the village in Minecraft. We even worked on this at home in the evening. We added the aerodrome, St. Mary’s Priory, tram lines, houses, a mill, graveyards, St. Maelruain’s church and much more.

We worked hard on this project and learned more. We helped each other and learned from each other. We loved this project because we got to make big decisions and solve problems.

we entered our project into a competition called MindRising and hope we will do really well.

Have look and enjoy!!
