On Friday, 2nd September 2011, Junior Infants, Senior Infants & First Class made their own Liam McCarthy Cup and waved the Kilkenny Colours to the traffic passing through Castlecomer!

The children really enjoyed the acknowledgement they received from passing traffic.

We’re hoping the Real Liam McCarthy Cup will be back in Kilkenny this year!!

Hockey

In our school we have lots of sports equipment. My favourite sport is hockey. During PE we warm up and then our teacher splits us up into groups. We then play lots of matches.

After our matches we have a final and the winners of the final get a treat from the teacher.  When we play hockey we use plastic or tennis balls as they are safer. Our school is very health and safety aware!

Tennis

One of the sports we play is tennis. It’s really great fun.  Timmy and I like to play it together.  It’s quite hard and we keep missing the ball and having to serve it again.

Our school has lots of tennis racquets and balls for us to use.
