Mini All-Ireland Competition

All week there have been mini Gaelic matches going on at breaktimes. All teams had players from Junior Infants up to 3rd class. It was a great way to mix and learn skills from older classes.

The final was on today, Galway vs Monaghan.

It was a very exciting match! We had a player on each team! 

Our supporters were ready 

We made flags for both teams!

The players were in a parade before the match started.

Our two players were very excited and seemed to enjoy playing a game of chasing during the match😊 once they were happy we were delighted to see them having so much fun!

It was a tight game with Monaghan coming out as the final winners.

The match was very delayed as it was a draw for so long. Apologies to all the parents who were waiting. We did expect the match and prize giving to be finished by 1.30. Like a typical All-Ireland final that was not the case!

Huge well done to all involved and to Joe, Ger, Ms Brady, Mr Moloney and Mr O Brien for organising the competition.

There were even Irish dancers there to entertain us at half time!

Well done to Monaghan who won and well done to Galway who were winning till the end.

We were very proud of our two players! They represented Junior Infants brilliantly!


A trip to the playground

As it’s close to the end of the year and the weather is so good, Junior Infants decided to take a trip to the playground.

The three classes went down to play.

Everyone was so good and played so nicely together. Hopefully if the weather is nice next week we’ll have another visit!


Irish Dancing Summer Camp

Claire, our Irish dancing teacher is organising a summer camp in our school.

The dates are 10th-14th July from 9.30-11.30 for our age group.

Please contact Claire if you’d be interested in your child attending.

Everyone really worked hard on their dancing skills this year. A lot of boys in particular showed great talent.

All of the children will dance again in Senior Infants. Summer Camp would help keep their interest and skills!
