A group of 6th Form pupils and teachers recently hopped on the school mini buses and travelled to Coláiste Uisce in Mayo to spend a weekend practising oral Irish. We arrived on Friday evening and were split into 4 teams for the weekend. Over the course of the weekend we took part in body boarding, pier jumping, raft building, bench ball, archery, climbing and more. We even had a céilí on our last night! A great weekend was had by everyone practising Irish and taking part in fun activities. We’d like to thank our Irish teachers, Mr. Flynn and Ms. Quinn for organising the trip and giving up their time to bring us. We’d also like to send a special word of thanks to Mr. Rankin who drove us there and even though he is not an Irish teacher, made a great effort to speak Irish all weekend. As they say “taithí a dhéanann máistreacht”.
