On the 15th of March 5th and 6th class went to the rugby blitz. We were separated up into 7 teams of ten. We played against our own teams and Leitrim.  When we were togged out we were given crisps, water and apples.  Nicole from Loughrea Rugby Club was training us for the last 6 weeks getting ready for the blitz. We had lots of fun.

FAI Soccer Blitzes

The school entered the FAI 5 aside school’s soccer blitzes this year. The teams were picked from 5th and 6th classes. We started off with about 50 players and then narrowed it down to 30 and then to 24. The 24 were the school teams of A, B and C. After a week of training we went to the blitz. We went to Salthill, Devon soccer grounds and there we played our matches. Each team played four matches except the A team who played six. The C team lost all their matches the B team won one drew one and lost two and the A team won four and lost two. Our A team got to the final but unfortunately lost. We had a great day out and sang lots of songs on the way home!
