Community Games Success
Firstly we played Charlestown in Kiltimagh. We had a great few balls over the bar and in the back of the net. The game went to extra time which we won. We had a lovely medal presentation. We made our way home to some bonfires and a homecoming.
The day we played the Connaught semi-final and final our venue was in Ballinasloe GAA. We had a hard match against Riverstown, Co. Sligo and we won by a point. Then we had another hard battle against Galway and won in extra time by a goal and 2 points. We went home to more bonfires.
On August 18th, we togged out and headed to the pitch and started warming up. We had our first match against Cork. We had a few great few balls in our hands, over the bar and in the back of the net. Sadly we lost, but we didn’t give up. We fought through the play-offs against Meath and won that by a point. Then we came home and had a nice homecoming, there were great celebrations in Cross with bonfires and a big party.
They all gather round in a circle saying and doing fun things. This week they discussed their families and they also drew very colourful pictures of their families. They also met a very shy monkey who is learning to be brave. Everyone got a treat at the end of the session.
They have homework to do every week but the homework is great fun as it involves doing fun things with their families without the use of technology.
