Trip to The Aviva

A team of pupils from Scoil Barra were luck enough to take a trip to the ALDI Play Rugby Tag Festival in the Aviva on the 16th of May. We had a long day out but it was worth the long bus journey. We got to see the Aviva stadium, play on the pitch, meet Paul O’ Connell and got a tour of the dressing rooms from Patrick ‘Rala’ O’ Reilly himself! Many thanks to ALDI and the IRFU for inviting us to such a special event. What a day to remember!

Tag Rugby In-School Blitz

The pupils of 5th and 6th class took part in the Scoil Barra Annual In-School Tag Rugby Blitz on Monday the 14th of May.  All of the pupils in 5th and 6th class enjoyed playing a sport where positive attitudes and sportsmanship are key.  Many thanks to Matt McGrath and his colleagues Vincent and Willie for helping out on the day.  Looking forward to next year’s blitz already!
