Nicky from our local GAA club Fingallians has been coaching us the skills of football (soloing, kicking and catching) for six weeks. Now she is teaching us hurling/camoige. It is the fastest field sport in the world. We have been learning striking and dribbling. Here are a few photos from this week.
