On Saturday it was my communion. In the church there were lots of people. We got a lot of photos. We got like 500 photos. When mass started we stood up and sang happy in the presence of the lord. Then I said a prayer and a prayer of the faithful. I gave Miss O Brien and Sister Caramel flowers. I got to my house last. When I went in I saw everyone from school sitting on the stairs. They all said where were you? I said at the church . We played pass the parcel and we had food. Then we had the cake. Then I went go karting. I didn’t crash once in half an hour.
On the 27th of may I went to Dublin for the Art Texaco awards. First I got up at 8 o'clock in the morning, we dropped my little sister to school and my mom and I went to the train station in Limerick to go to Dublin. We met my grandma there and went on the train. We were in the train for about 15 minutes and then we took another train. That train took 2 hours and then we were in Dublin. We went to the Royal Hospital where the awards were. We stood beside our art work and got our picture taken. The president was there and he was looking at our work and was talking to us. Then we had to sit down to be called up to the stage and get our picture taken. After that there was food and drinks in a room where we got our prize. I won a special merit award and got art supplies. We went walking outside in the gardens with my mom, grandma and uncle. It was a really good day. We took two trains to get back to Limerick and then I went home.

Last Friday all the children from Second class up went to Thurles for a GAA blitz. When we got there we were split up into groups and put into mixed teams with other schools. We played three matches, one of which was on the main pitch in Semple Stadium. We all got our photos taken under the tunnel in the field and got to see the stadium. Three of us played football and everyone else played hurling. It was a wonderful experience and it will be treasured for years to come. On the way home, we all got ice-pops. Thanks to Tipperary GAA for the wonderful day.
For the last couple of weeks we have been doing our summer tests in English and Maths. They were difficult but everyone did their best. We will be doing smaller tests in June after we have finished revision. Teacher says the results will go home in our school reports in mid-June and our parents will be delighted.
