Every year the children of Tinahely NS make the long walk to Tomnafinouge Woods to enjoy a fun filled but tiring day out. The children walk the 5km from the school to get there. While there they participate in a fun run through the woods, enjoy a picnic in the woods with their classmates and then they get into the river to take part in a boat race. They have to make their own boats from recyclable material and then race them against their fellow classmates. When this is over they they get to take part in a splash about in the water. 

This a really fun day out and is enjoyed by both the children and the staff of the school.
