There was great excitement before Easter when we learned that the senior room pupils in Ballagh NS had been selected to take part in the Halftime show at the Connacht V Edinburgh Rugby match at the Sportsground in Galway on March 23rd. The 12 children from 3rd to 6th class travelled by bus to Galway with teacher, Ms. Nolan and Principal, Ms. O’Connor. It was a wonderful experience for the children to form the guard of honour as the Connacht and Edinburgh players ran out on the pitch to begin their match. After a very enjoyable first half, the children eagerly took to the pitch for their chance to play rugby in this renowned Sportsground Stadium in front of a large crowd. We would like to thank Connacht Rugby for organising this event.
