5th Class Recount Writing

September 13th, 2017 by Mr Byrne

Mr Byrne’s 5th class have been preparing, drafting, writing and typing their own recount writing recently on the All Ireland Hurling final. Congratulations to Ruth McCloskey, Leah Molloy and Cyprian Wolski whose articles appear below:

All Ireland Final: By Ruth McCloskey

In Croke Park, Sunday the 3rd of September, the All Ireland Hurling Final 2017 took place. Galway vs. Waterford were the lucky finalists.

At the start of this highly anticipated game, Galway took an early lead with 2 points to nil. Waterford desperately needed a goal, and just past 4 minutes Waterford scored their first goal. By the 13th minute Galway were leading by 4 points, and on 17 minutes Galway had scored their 9th point.

At halftime, with Galway ahead by just 1 point, it was all or nothing for both teams! Both teams were playing their hearts out. But just on full time Galway went dashing ahead. The Waterford team had to do something! And fast!

But in the end, as the final whistle blew, it would be Galway to win this astonishing game. The final score was Galway 0-26 to Waterford’s 2-17. The Tribesmen had come out on top. It was 1988 the last time Galway won. So it seemed that Liam McCarthy had found a new home! Until next year! . . . .

2017 All Ireland Hurling Final: By Leah Molloy

On the 3rd of September 2017, Galway and Waterford battled it out in the All Ireland hurling final. It took place in Croke Park. It started at 3:30pm and ended at 5:15. Whatever team won would bring home the shiny Liam McCarthy cup.

Galway started with two quick points. Kevin Moran scored the first goal for Waterford. Galway were then winning by two points at half time. Tommy Ryan scored a spectacular point for Waterford and the Waterford fans cheered.

Galway eventually won and brought home the Liam McCarthy cup. All the Galway fans went home happy and they were very happy because Galway had not won in 29 years!


2017 All IRELAND HURLING FINAL by Cyprian Wolski

Last Sunday in Croke Park the All Ireland Final was played between Galway and Waterford. They were trying to win the trophy called Liam McCarty.

After the whistle blew, Kevin Moran scored a great goal for Waterford. But Galway did not want Waterford to win. Galway played their hearts out and Galway scored more points and before half time Galway were ahead by 1 point. This meant that it was 0-14 for Galway and 2-07 for Waterford. The crowd was amazed by the game so far.

In the second half though Waterford went ahead by a few points. The match was getting more intense every second. Galway then then got the breeze at their backs they had a chance to close the gap. At that second Galway scored a beauty and then a few more points. The final whistle blew and it was over – Galway had WON! The crowd cheered.

Galway were happy. They did not win for the past 29 years everyone was delighted. That’s how the All Ireland Final ended!

Here is the link to ‘classroom workout’. There will be 2 versions of this video, one in English and one as Gaeilge.
