FĂ©ile Peile Trip - Thu 18 May 2017

  Rang 7 enjoy a visit to the Gaeltacht
 
Mr Galvin’s Rang 7 class from Bunscoil na mBráithre Críostaí, Ard Mhacha made a trip recently to the Cloich Cheann Fhaola Gaeltacht in northwest Donegal to compete in the Féile Peile, a mixed football competition organised by Gael Linn.  The local Greenpark Bunscoil was pitted against other Bunscoil and Gaeltacht National School teams from across the length and breadth of Ulster. 
 
Following a number of gruelling encounters during the group qualification stage the Bunscoil pupils reached the semi-final of the Féile Peile cup.  Despite not progressing to the final itself, the buachaillí and the cailíní could be very proud of their gallant performances throughout the competition. 
 
In addition to all the football, the pupils got an opportunity to do some shopping in Letterkenny, take part in an Irish Language quiz and céilí with other Irish speaking pupils and stay overnight and experience life in general in the Gaeltacht.  They also enjoyed time on Magheraorty beach, an area well renowned for its beauty and spectacular scenery.  The pupils were complimented frequently on their standard of spoken Irish and excellent behaviour over the two days. Go hiontach!
 
Finally, congratulations to Lorcán Mac Dhuifinn who was selected as the Bunscoil’s man-of- the-tournament by the school and was awarded a special medal in recognition of his gallant performances during the Féile Peile.
