Scratch News

I am subbing in a Gaelscoil this week, and I had to edit this post like 5 times. Which is funny cause I only had to write 2 lines!! I noticed that I wrote the sentances in a format of noun then follwed by the verb….that’s what I like about Irish; it changes your sentence structure and helps when writing pomes! Yes, I also write pomes….don’t think they will ever see the light of day on this blog……I’d be morto to share ’em!!

OK 6th time lucky:

I received this press release from Lero, Ireland. I won’t be able to make it so I am depending on those of you who do go to keep me updated!
