The students also received their junior cert results in Denmark!

A group of young local students have been given the chance to explore Norse and Viking legends in Denmark this week.

Students from the Ballymahon Vocational School are taking part in multi national Erasmus plus project in the Nordic country this week.

The project involves students and teachers from Ireland, Demark, Spain and Belguim working on literature from Danish, Norse and Viking legends.

It's envisioned that the groups will further travel to the host countries in the coming months to learn about unique myth and legends still held by different European cultures.

Principal of the Ballymahon Vocational School, Mick O'Rourke spoke to  the Let's Talk show today and says the connections made on the programme will last years:

"We're in school in Denmark here in Aarhus and we're doing some work in there. Ultimately it's about our young people from rural Ballymahon making those international connections and making friendships"

Thomas Proctor is a student from the Ballymahon secondary school.

He says the programme has been well worthwhile

"I thought it was absolutely deadly. I really enjoyed opening my junior cert results here. I was really happy for the rest of the day and I really enjoyed it".
