Christmas Treat: Trip to Cinema

Today, the whole school was treated to a trip to the IMC cinema in Galway to see the film; Ferdinand.

The film was very enjoyable. All we can say without giving too much away is that Ferdinand is not your typical bull and definitely not one you would see in the fields in and around Kilrickle!!!

On arrival, the children received the usual cinema goodies and on the way home we stopped in the Galway Plaza for our lunch making sure we all left room for icecream!

By the end of the day we were all happy,contented but tired. With only a few days left to the Christmas holidays it was the perfect way to wind down to the end of the year.

All in all it was an enjoyable day.

Liam MacCarthy Visits Kilrickle

Last Wednesday Kilrickle National School was delighted to welcome the Liam MacCarthy and the Irish Press Cups to the school with local heroes James Skehill and Damien Joyce.

After Galway's fantastic year in sport, winning the senior and minor all - Ireland hurling competitions, the children of Kilrickle were eager to get their hands on the trophies, particularly the Liam MacCarthy which had eluded the county for so long.

Damien and James spoke to us about winning the trophies and took time to take pictures and sign jerseys, hurleys and sliotars to name but a few.

Both men were extremely kind to us and it was an absolute pleasure to have them come to our school, taking time out of their hectic schedules with both players having represented their club and county with distinction.

May their visit fuel the ambitions and motivations of the next generation of hurling and camóige players in our school.
Míle Buíochas daoibh!
