Máirt Inide

March 6th, 2018

Rinne na páistí pancóga as gaeilge. Lean siad oideas agus bhí orthu labhairt as gaeilge on t-am ar fad. Bhí sé deacair ach bhain siad taitneamh as!

For Pancake Tuesday the children made pancakes through Irish. They followed a recipe and had to speak Irish the whole time! It was hard but the children enjoyed it!
