What’s in the news?
The flu outbreak at Nazareth House nursing home in Buncrana Co. Donegal has been declared over by the health service.
Seven elderly residents at the Co. Donegal home died, as a result of the outbreak. I feel sad that so many elderly died from the same nursing home.

A new survey outlines the financial hardships householders are facing on a daily basis.
The study by the Irish League of Credit Unions shows the disposable income of thousands householders remains under severe pressure.
Almost half of the people that were served said they are left with €100 or less at the end of the month after paying essential bills. I feel that people are just working to pay bills and to feed themselves.

Mayo were playing Kerry on Sunday in our Gaelic Football League semi final. Mayo won the score was 1:17 to 2:15. It was an outstanding game. Mayo played class, Connor Mortimer scored 5 points in a row and they were the first points that Mayo got. I hope that Mayo win the cup. I think that Mayo played outstanding and that they deserve to win the League       (by Eoin)
