Conas atá sibh? (How are you?) Tá súil againn go bhfuil sibh go maith (We hope that you are well). We have made a list of all the Irish words which you have been learning as we have heard that some parents have set themselves a challenge to learn Irish as well. Maith Thú! (Well done!) The list is attached in the next post and will be updated every week.
We hope you all had an enjoyable weekend and had some fun in the sun. Did you like learning all about the Farm last week? Ms Darcy’s father was so delighted to welcome two baby lambs to his farm last month.
