Going to Dublin to play for Belfast Schools
To get on the Belfast Schools team I had to go to four trials, after the fourth trial a letter was sent to school to say that I had been picked along with two other girls from my class - we were all really excited!
On the morning of the match we had to get up at 6.30 am to get the train to Dublin at 8.00 am but I didn't even care about the early start I just couldn't wait to get there! I was a wee bit disappointed that my mummy and daddy couldn't get off work but I was glad my big brother could come with me. The train was loads of fun because I was with all my friends. When we got to Dublin we got a bus to go to the pitch where we were going to play. When we arrived we all had to get changed into the Antrim rig - I was really excited to see everyone all wearing their Antrim kits, next we had to line up and we were marched around the pitch led by a piper who then played the national anthem. During our match both teams played really well but Antrim were a bit better and we won!! We got medals at the end and I was really proud to have represented my family, my club and my school. After the presentations we got a bus and went and done a tour of Croke Park which was really interesting, it really was a memorable day. I fell asleep on the train on the way home but loved when we got off the train and everyone was there to meet us - it was a really brilliant day!
