A team from 6th class played in the final of the Pat Browne cup in Rubgy on Thursday 4th May against St. George’s National School at Balbriggan Rugby Club. It was a thrilling encounter, contested fiercely between two excellent teams. St Gorges took an early lead, getting the first try, which was quickly cancelled out by an excellent run leading to a try, from our own Daniel. The two teams were then locked in battle until half time, following a repeated pattern where St. Georges would go one ahead, only for St. Molaga’s to equalise minutes later. This lead to a score of 5-4 to St. George’s at half time. At the half-time break, joint captains Josh and Conor C could be heard exhorting their team to hold the line and look for an early lead in the second half. Alas, it was not to be so, as St George’s broke through again, securing another try to give them a two-point lead at the start of the second half. St Molaga’s are nothing if not persistent however, and they dug in, to narrow the lead to one point shortly thereafter. St. Molaga’s Naoise played a key role in the centre of the line, tagging a superbly athletic player from St. George’s no less than three times, with tags also being made at key moments by Rian, Stan and Conor H. to prevent St. George’s players from scoring. The second half continued in this way with “tit for tat” tries from each side; St Molaga’s desperately trying to pull ahead with only minutes remaining until half-time. The full-time whistle finally blew, with both teams on even points! After a short break, the teams were informed that an extra 10 minutes would be played, but, it was a “sudden death” situation, with the first team to get a try to be declared winners. St. Molaga’s, being in possession of the ball, had the upper hand. One after the other however, the four tags allowed were used up until the ball passed again to St. Georges! Now they had the upper hand and, with the extraordinary speed and athleticism they had displayed up to that point, many feared that all was lost for St. Molaga’s! However, in a stroke of good luck for St. Molaga’s, St. George’s knocked the ball forward in error, which meant that the ball passed back to St. Molaga’s. The school team were quick to capitalise on St. George’s error and making a determined effort they pushed towards the touchline, with Daniel breaking free at last to score the winning try, his sixth in the final. Tries were also scored on the night by Josh, Colm (assisted by Eoin H) and Killian. Amid scenes of great jubilation, the trophy was presented by Mrs Brown in memory of her husband (Pat Browne – one of the founding members of the club) and St. Molaga’s team showed great sportsmanship in calling for three cheers for their opponents, who indeed were magnanimous in defeat. All in all, the final provided the spectators with an excellent display of rugby and sportsmanship. The Pat Browne trophy has come back to grace the trophy cabinet in St. Molaga’s school after a break of one year, and please God it will be back many times again in the years ahead! St. Molaga’s abú!

We did a SVP food appeal for the homeless and people who wouldn’t have a Christmas dinner .We were asked to bring food in, at least one item. We had to bring it in for December 16th. As a class we made posters to remind every class about the food appeal. We hung posters around the school. The posters had to have 16th of December on them as that was the final date to bring in the food. On the posters we had lists of items that we could bring in. We sent people from our class around the school to remind everyone one more time. We had to remind them that the food had to have a non-perishable items and a good Best-before date. Our collection was very successful we got hundredss of items, and people from the SVP came to collect all of the food. They were delighted with all we had collected and we were happy to help.

On December 20th all of our class got candy from kids in Nevada like Airheads, hot tamales, Jolly Ranchers, Mike and Ike, Nerds, Milk duds, Reece’s Peanut Butter Cups, Butter, Fingers, Skittles, Almond joy, Malted Milk Balls and Ferrero Roche in our class the favourite sweet was airheads and nerds not a lot of people liked hot tamales we sent them lots of crisps like Tayto Walkers etc we also sent them Double Deckers, Dairy Milk, Milky Ways, Jelly like Haribo Etc. The bad thing about the candy was when we sent it to America the school closed for their Christmas Holiday’s so they weren’t able to taste the candy. Some of their candy could be bought in Ireland and some could not. They probably got a half packet of crisps each. Every one wanted to get Jolly Ranchers but there was only five. Most of the class liked Irish candy more than American candy.
On Monday the 23rd of January 2017 Ciarán Kilkenny came into our school with the Sam Maguire. The Sam Maguire is named after Sam Maguire who was born in Cork on the 12 of March 1877 and died in 1927 at the age of 49.He was a famous Republican and GAA player.He was one of Michael Collins’s right hand men.He died of TB.They say he died broken hearted + penniless and was buried in Dunmanway. The cup was designed + presented to the GAA in 1928 after his death. It cost £300 (which would be e26,393 now). We all crowded around Ciarán Kilkenny and the Sam Maguire after small break. Ms.Costello went around with a microphone and some people asked him questions like: How did he feel when they drew against Mayo? and Who was the toughest player he played against. A girl from 3rd class asked him to sign her jersey, and he did. Then he said, because Ms Costello was from Mayo, if we all said “Up the Dubs” on the count of 3, we would get a night off homework. So he counted to 3 and we all shouted ” up the Dubs” really loudly, and we have no homework tonight! Hurrah!
On Friday the 13th of January the Garda Horses came into our school. One was called Donnagh and the other was called Oscar. Donnagh is 14 and Oscar is 8. They were adorable. Donnagh’s coat was a chestnut colour and Oscar had a grey coat. They were adorable! They are Shire types of horses. The horses came because Kevin Dowling won the Christmas Card competition.
We got to rub them and the lady told us facts about them. At the end, we got pictures with them and..
Oscar was POSING !!!!!!!
