Boys and Girls from St Gabriel’s participated in the FAI 5 a-side tournament in Irishtown this weekend. Despite some absences, the girls did well, winning their first match 4-0!
The boys topped their group and made it as far as the semi-finals. Well done to all!
3rd and 4th were invited on a tour of Dalymount Park, home ground of League of Ireland club Bohemians. We met the club chairman and star Romanian striker, Christian Magerusan. We visited the dressing rooms, the stands and lots of other facilities. We made a display about what we saw, did and learned. We are very grateful to Shane, Paul and Carina for being such wonderful guides!
Ms Walsh’s class have been busy finding out about a patron saint of Ireland, St Brigid, whose feast day is the 1st of February.
They also crafted these wonderful St Brigid’s crosses in art, and gave them as presents (along with lovely cards) to each class. How kind!
