Camogie Blitz

On Wednesday October 21, the girls from 3, 4,5 and 6 classes travelled to Sligo to participate in a Come and Try camogie blitz, organised by Camogie Ireland.
We left the school at 9 o clock and arrived at Sligo I.T. at 10 o clock where we were given a changing room and one of the coaches made sure we all had a helmet and a hurley.
Outside on the pitch we were split into 2 teams and we played against girls from other Sligo schools. There were children from 8 schools there altogether. We learned camogie skills, such as, how to hold a hurley stick properly and how to pick up the ball with a hurley stick.
Finally, we had our picture taken with all the other schools and coaches. It was a very enjoyable day.
