City Centre and Shopping - 9th (and last) Weekend

Last weekend in Dublin!
This is coming to the end, as we did our last Saturday plan in Ireland.
This week we started the project 4, whose name is "Let's rap". The boys have recorded their own written raps and I will mix the different parts to make a song!
The boys knew since the beginning what would be the last plan... Shopping!
I took the chance to visit the most important places in Dublin's city centre, as we had just studied them in the third project. So we went to Trinity College, Dublin Castle, St. Patrick, Christ Church, St. Stephen's Green... and finally to do some shopping.
I can't tell you much about it, because the lads would like to keep it secret. You will have some surprises on Thursday!
Last week, last days, last hours in Dublin. Let's make the most out of them.
See you soon!

Rockbrook Champions League - 8th Weekend

This weekend it was time to take part in the traditional football tournament of all Spanish students here in Dublin: The Rockbrook Champions League.
During the week, I have to mention that schools are doing many outings and fun activities. For example, Ballyroan School received the visit of the Garda Band, the music ensemble of the Irish police! (garda=police in Irish!).
On Saturday we went to mass and afterwards we spent the whole day in Rockbrook. Viaró participated with 2 teams and Ramón and Tomás volunteered to play in the "mixed team", with students from other schools.
Pablo Gutiérrez missed this plan, because he traveled with his family to... England! I'm sure he enjoyed it a lot!
It was very diffiult to compete against the other students, but I'm really proud of both teams! They both lost 2 games and won 1, so they couldn't advance to the semifinals. However, they played very well!
At the end, it was time for a well-deserved picnic! Although we didn't win medals or trophies, we enjoyed some snacks and drinks, with a special prize for Ramón and Tomás for their generosity, after a day full of sports!
Here you have the gallery of the tournament:

Aquatic Centre - 7th Weekend

We just started the month of June!
The end of the stay is on sight and the boys know it... Most of them are already counting the days until we go back to Spain. But let's spend the remaining days as best as we can!
This Saturday we went to the Aquatic Centre after the Mass at Our Lady Queen of Peace.
Photos were not allowed at the Aquatic Centre, so we just took this picture outside:
Since Monday was a Bank Holiday, both Carlos Calvo and Iker Escarpenter were doing outings with their families, so they didn't come to the plan. Pablo Guitérrez couldn't also join the others for medical reasons, so we stayed at the cafeteria playing games and watching the others. He deserved that ice-cream!
After the Aquatic Centre, we went to do some shopping at the Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, very near to the Aquatic Centre. Finally we went back to Rockbrook and Rosemont, where the boys were picked up by their families.
But the day was not over for me and for Álex Navarro, as we had to visit the doctor... But everything's fine! We watched the Champions League Final at the waiting room of the clinic.
See you soon!
