    The co-ordinators met in the morning to discuss issues relating to the budget and make financial decisions linked to teacher and student mobilities. The division of tasks was agreed. The other teachers had free time to visit Claremorris or nearby park. 

    Afterwards, we visited Gortskehy National School and met the pupils. The teachers visited each class, chatted with the pupils and were given a demonstration of Gaelic football.  The afternoon ended with a walking tour of Westport on the west coast of Mayo.  In the evening we had a meal together in a local pub with entertainment afterwards provided by the pupils followed by a traditional Irish music session.
