Seachtain na Gaeilge
In March, 2019 our school celebrated Seachtain na Gaeilge (or Irish Week) and we had lots of fun activities to do throughout the week!
Like we do every year, the teachers organised an Irish competition. Whenever a student had a conversation with a teacher in Irish won a ticket and whoever had the most tickets at the end of the week won. Our winner was Katie Skully, with a total of 42 points! That will be a hard record to beat next year.
Near the end of the week we had a great, challenging Irish quiz. The whole school were put into groups to battle it out for the winning glory.
Irish may be dying out but I’m sure if we work hard enough we can bring our native language back! We certainly do that here in Kiltiernan!!
