Challenge accepted!!

Hey guys,
So  one of Mrs.L's blog challenges this month is to make a blog post in a different language! So i decided to get in touch with my cultural side and I am going to blog in.....(Drum Roll).....Gujarati!
( for those who are not fluent in this language google translate come in very handy ;)
અને ગુજરાતી શું લાગે. તેથી પણ આ અઠવાડિયે તે મારા મહાન મિત્ર માતાનો કેટ જન્મદિવસ અને ચોક્કસ મૂર્ખ માણસ કે હું છું હું સંપૂર્ણપણે ભૂલી ગયા છો! આવે છે. તેથી હું કેટ, જન્મદિવસની હાર્દિક શુભેચ્છા કેટ અને મે બ્લોગ પોસ્ટ સમર્પિત તમારા જીવનના આગામી 16 વર્ષ તેજસ્વી કરવા માંગો છો.
Okay so that was my best attempt but google translate proves me wrong so in case anybody was left in stitches by that random message this is what i really meant to say;
And this is what Gujarati looks like!. So also this week It is my great Friend Kate's Birthday and being the absolute idiot that I am i completely forgot!. So I would like to dedicate this blog post to Kate,  HAPPY BIRTHDAY KATE and may the next 16 years of your life be brilliant.
Here is also a link to Kate's blog  if you want to read some of her great posts :)

TEArific Lá Glás!

Hey guys,
So myself being Irish a very very very important event has just gone buy in our calender, St.Pa tricks day!  And to celebrate Paddy's day and seachtain na Gaeilge our school had Lá Glás!  so basically every body dresses up in a themed Irish outfit and it can be anything crazy from the great Barry's tea bags to a glass of Guinness or a culchie farmer to a bag of tayto's crisps. Its all a bit of banter and its all for a good cause as each student who dresses up brings in €2 which is then donated to a local charity, its the best of both worlds :)
So then at lunch time every student in the school comes down to the hall and we all join in the fun of a good old Irish Cheile organised by the prefects. Even if you never did Irish dancing before everybody joins in to have great fun and involvement to great Irish songs and there are awards given to best dressed costumes and best dressed teacher.
All in All the day way GO IONTACH  and  it makes me proud to be Irish :')

Myself and Cat in our costumes on the way to the hall at lunch.
  Every body getting their Jig on ;)

Hockey Hockey Hockey.. and did i mention Hockey?

Hey guys,
SoYesterday we had our Leinster Hocky semi final against Rathdown in Rathdown. It was one of the most difficult matches i have ever played and it was literally a fight to the death. Even tho sadly we lost 1-0 i could not be more proud of our team and they are the nicest and most talented bunch of girls i have ever played with. We wouldn't have gotten as far as we did without our amazing manager Mrs.C  and next year we will go the full way and win some silver wear!

Till sudden death do us part

Hey guys,
So yesterday  was the leinsters hockey quarter final. A few other girls and I from the senior team tagged along to help mentor the team and help out on the sidelines. The match was so so intense and we were so proud of the girls performance! they battled for every ball  and had the crowd on the edge of their seats.
At the end of full time tho the score of the match was 2-2 but our girls were not about to give up just yet!
with the match quickly heading into extra time the score once again ended as a draw at 1-1.... The teams were evenly matched and nether team was about to give up. When extra time ended it went straight away into penalties ( it was like our last years final which didn't end well all over again :( )  BUT once again at the end of penalties  the score was a draw  AGAIN  I'm telling you now those teams were  just amazingly matched. so then... DUN DUN DUUUUUUUUHHHNN the match went into SUDDEN DEATH penalties and who ever scored first would win. Our girls battled so hard and  their team work was outstanding even tho in the end the girls lost with one goal. But they kept their heads high and we could not have been more proud of their performance's.  But i know the next year the girls will go up and beyound and will be the winners :D and tomorrow  they will becoming to our senior hockey Leinster Semi-finals... Wish us luck !!
