We won against Ruan-Toonagh on the 16th of June in Cusack Park, having defeated O’Callaghan Mills-Kilkishen in the semi-finals. It was a challenging game but we defeated Ruan-Toonagh by nine points. The end score was 4-13 to 2-9. It was such a fun day and we are especially proud because it has been seven years since Knockanean boys were last hurling champions.

On 30th May 6th class went to Lahinch to Ben’s Surf School. First, we got changed into wetsuits, got our boards and went down to the beach. It was low tide so we had lots of beach. Before we went into the water we learned the basics of surfing on the beach. We learned where to place our feet and our arms and then went into the water and practised all that. When we came out we learned how to stand up on the board. We then went back out again and tried to stand up while on the board on the water. Most of us found it really difficult. When we finished we brought the boards back up and had our lunch. We then had some free time to go around the shops. After that, we relaxed for a while on the rocks and then left for home. We had an unreal day!
