Jumpzone & Pilgrimage - 6th Weekend

Last weekend of May!
The weather these last days is being amazing! However, we had a very cloudy and rainy day on Saturday, which made us change our plans a bit. But it didn't really matter! We were able to do a fun activity and combine it with the traditional pilgrimage of May to pray to Our Lady Virgin Mary.
After the Holy Mass we drove to the Jumpzone!
The Jumpzone is a place with lots of trampolines and different jumping areas, where the lads got reaaaally exhausted, but had a lot of fun.
After that, we had planned to drive to a beautiful church to do our pilgrimage, but it was raining all the time and, when we got there, there was a wedding taking place. That's why we prayed 2 rosaries in the bus and then prayed the third one in the chapel of Rockbrook.
In Rockbrook we had also time to play "the wolf", talk and have fun before they were collected by their host families.
I'm sorry I didn't take many pictures this time, but you will enjoy a video tomorrow at school!
See you soon!

Fort Lucan - 5th Weekend

First month is over!
Today marks the half of our stay here in Dublin, one month has passed and one month is left. This weekend we received a very special visit: Mr. Gómez and Mr. Santín came to Ireland! They stayed here from Thursday to Sunday and brought a lot of letters and presents from families and classmates in Spain.
All the boys were really excited when reading the letters on Friday. Our visitors also came with us to the Saturday plan. We went to mass at Our Lady Queen of Peace and then we drove to Lucan to have fun at Fort Lucan! Fort Lucan is a theme park with different slides, pedal karts, mini golf and many other funny things.
The weather was changing all the time, so it was cloudy, rainy, sunny, windy... In other words, the usual weather here in Ireland! Since the boys were already wet from the water slides, the weather didn't really matter. After the plan we drove back to Rosemont and Rockbrook to stay the weekend with the families.
Here you have the gallery with the best photos of Saturday. Sorry if some of the boys don't appear much! See you soon!

Croke Park Stadium - 4th Weekend

3rd week gone in Dublin!
This week we had again a lovely weather, better than in Barcelona! But on Friday the clouds came back and we had showers and rains during the whole weekend.
It was time to get to know more the Irish culture and we did that by visiting one of the most emblematic places in Dublin: Croke Park Stadium.
Croke Park is the stadium of the Irish nation, where the Irish sports of the GAA are played: Hurling and Gaelic Football. The tour guide told us a lot of very interesting things about these sports, the stadium and its history.
After the visit to the stadium we went to do some shopping at the Dundrum Town Centre.
This week we are going to receive the visit of Mr. Gómez and Mr. Santín!
You can see the best photos of the weekend (some of them taken by the boys!) here:

Footee (FootGolf) - 3rd Weekend

After 2 complete weeks and 3 weekends, it's time to take the experience to the next level!
The students handed in the first project, about learning the most important prayers in English and now they are starting the second one, about the origin of placenames in Ireland, using the guide.
We all think a lot of Richy and his family and offered the mass of Saturday and Holy Rosaries for his father's soul. Richy, we miss you!
We had a beautiful weather during this week and it seems the Sun will stay with us some time!
This weekend we went to play a mix of two sports: Football + Golf = Footgolf!
With our football boots on, we went to Footee in Tallaght, close to Rockbrook and played 18 holes!
After that, we all were exhausted and some Domino's Pizzas were waiting for us.
It was a great day and, even though we ended up quite tired, we had a lot of fun!
You can see all photos from Saturday here: (I forgot to take a group photo, sorry!)
