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.
