Surfing 🏄🏼

Culdaff Beach basically the same as Bondi Beach in my opinion 🏄🏼✌🏻

On Monday, our TY group headed down to the sunny side of life in Culdaff with our PE teacher MrMcMullan, to go surfing! 

When we arrived, we got our wetsuits on, got our surfboards, and headed to the water 🌊 We were instructed on what to do and what not to do, but there’s only so much practice you can do outside of the water! 

Before we headed into the water we got a team photo of course to show off how well our wetsuits suited us ☀️⛅️

In the water I caught a few waves, but never was able to stand up on the board , it’s definitely a lot harder than it looks to surf but the waves were amazing 👌🏻

After surfing we had a BBQ on the beach which was great because we were all starving, then we roasted marshmallows which was very cute and they tasted delicious ! 😍

All over one of the best TY trips so far 🏄🏼🌟 


Giant’s Causeway 👣

Who knew research about Irish mythology could be so much fun?

Recently in Irish we have been working on myths and legends of the Irish history. These include the stories of Oisin and Niamh in Tír Na nÓg, the children of Lir, and Fionn Mac Cumhaill. Our Irish teacher, MsMcFadden, decided that after that hard work we deserved a trip! As the Giant’s Causeway is full of culture and stories of Fionn Mac Cumhaill and the Giant it was the perfect spot.

We raised money for the trip by making our families Guess The Score of The All-Ireland replay match and pay us €2 for a guess! It was a great idea and worked perfectly for raising money.

The Causeway is beautiful and the views were absolutely amazing. And to top off the great day we headed to Portrush after, I loved the day and really can’t believe how quick this year is going! 😪

Ireland v Georgia ðŸ‡®ðŸ‡ªâ˜˜ðŸ’š

This time last week our TY group and the 5th year mentors headed down to the Aviva Stadium in Dublin to see Ireland take on Georgia in the World Cup Qualifier. We were accompanied by teachers Ms Bradley, Mr McMullan, and Mr Casey. We left the school after break, stopped in Monaghen then went straight to Blanchardstown. Going to Blanchardstown was great for us TY’s because we already knew our way about from the trip to Kildare for the TY Expo.

We left Blanchardstown at 6 and made the short journey from there to the Aviva Stadium. A group of girls bought green glow paint the day before and one even went around the bus putting it on everyone. Safe to say if a person had glow paint on you would know there from Crana College! 💚

We got off the bus, got our tickets and made our way over. There was lots of chants to be sang, so the journey definitely wasn’t boring!

Our seats were great too and the match itself was amazing! Shane Long scored the goal which I was very happy with as he’s my favourite player on the team (soz Coleman!). The atmosphere in Aviva was absolutely brilliant and there’s no surprise that Ireland got the award for the best fans at the Euros 2016.

The bus journey home was the best of craic with everyone still on a high from the win! It was such a brilliant day and I wish I could repeat it all over again, not only to see the boys in green but the craic was top notch ☘💚
