Irish Choral Verse

Ciarán writes about the Irish Choral Verse competition:
The bus arrived precisely at ten o’clock . We travelled on the same bus as the Gaelscoil in Ballincollig. The event began at eleven o’clock . There were two categories and we were in the older category. When we up to say our poems none of us were nervous. So we said our poems and got off the stage. After another two groups there was a break for about ten minutes. We were nervous when they started calling out the results. We won! We all cheered and we were all excited. Jack McCarthy and Ali Hayes went up to get the prize. We went back to school afterwards. We were the first class in Ovens to win the event.
