Yesterday my class went to our first game of Cumann na mBunscol.
Cumann Na mBunscol is a Gaelic football competition in which schools play against each other in the hope of becomming Cumann na mBunscol champions of the year.
Yesterday we (the girls) played against Shraigh in Bangor N.S pitch
and the boys played against Pullathomas in Pullathomas’s own pitch.
Both my team and the boys’ team played very well yet unfortunately both of us lost.
Despite our obviously disappointing losses, we all cheered up when our (really nice!) teachers brought us all into Sizzlers take away for chips and chicken nuggets!
We all had a great day and I enjoyed it very much.
We were gone all day and got no HOMEWORK!

Well done to the Inver N.S. Boys football team who recently competed in the mini 7’s competition in Belmullet. Their first game was against Doohoma NS who were very strong. This resulted in a defeat but not without a good challenge from the boys. Doohoma went on to win the competition so well done to them!
The second game was against Glencastle N.S. Again a very strong team! The Inver boys worked well as a team, kept their head high despite the previous loss and this effort paid off with Inver ahead at the final whistle. We are proud of all the boys. Keep it up!
Tá muid ag ullmhú don Nollaig i SN an Inbhir faoi lathair. Tá muid ag foghlaim faoin gcéad Nollaig agus ag reitiú don Nollaig. Tá muid ag féachaint ar gach duine sa seomra ranga ag déanamh random acts of kindness don Aidbhint agus ag leanúint an feilire Aidbhinte ó (Cumann na bPáistí Miseantach) WMI. Tá muid ag lasadh coinnle sa bhfleasc Aidbhinte gach seachtain agus ag rá paidreacha do dhaoine eile. Tá máinséar againn sa seomra ranga agus tá an seomra maisithe againn.
Tá muid ag reitiú don ceolchoirm sa seipéil ar an 19ú chomh maith. Beidh muid ag seinnt ceol agus ag déanamh ceoldrám faoi scéal na Nollag. Beidh gach páiste sa scoil ag glacadh páírt ann.
Seo pictiúr beag den obair atá ar siúil againn faoi lathair:
My favourite hobby is Gaelic football. I like Gaelic because it’s an Irish sport and it’s good fun playing it.
I play with Kilcommon too. I’ve only been there two years, and so far we have won 2 cups, 1 shield and 1 plaque. The shield was for winning national school competition and the plaque was for the Knockmore blitz for U10’s.
When we won the National school shield it was class! We beat Bonniconlon. It was a brilliant game. It was good beating them but better lifting the shield! And the score was tight all the way through the match.
The plaque we won wasn’t as good. It was for coming 4th in the whole thing but it was better than nothing. But when we were going home we had no plaque… only our medals. The man in charge forgot to give us our plaque! When we were half-way home the man rang John Walker, our manager, to explain that he forgot to give us the plaque.
We were kind of annoyed that we didn’t get it there but we were happy to have won it. I picked this as my favourite hobby because I have played in all of these games and scored a few goals and points, and have won trophies with Kilcommon!
A visit from the Mayo Champions on PhotoPeach
On Wednesday two players from the Mayo Minor team came to our school and showed us a big cup that they won. It was a very big cup. Their names were Finan & Hugh. We all
got a chance to hold the cup. It was big but it was light. We got a picture with them.
