10 Questions About…

Feeding the Ducks in Kilbogget Park by Ann Treacy

One of the things that always amazes me is how much work they do on the parks here. They have been working on the park across the street forever. The last time we were here they put in benches and built up a new soccer/rugby pitch.

Since we’ve been gone they’ve really been working on the steam that runs through the park. It used to be overgrown with brambles and litter – but they’ve cleaned it all up. It’s really quite pretty.

Aine and I feed the ducks there sometimes. Well, we try to feed the ducks but the seagulls are a lot faster and scrappier. Let’s just say we feed our feathered friends.

There are times when I wish I was a better photographer because all around the park you can see the Wicklow and Dublin Mountains. We can see Bray Head, baby Sugar Loaf, big Sugar Loaf (aka Poop Loaf – and if you’ve ever climbed it you know why) and others. Patrick tries to get the girls to remember the names whenever we’re waiting for a bus on the other side of the park.

Thanks for the message! I will try to show you some more pictures. Can you please send another message?

I am going to try to get a video with me saying a few words in Irish posted for you soon.

It is fun staying here – but I miss the Kinders at home.

Thanks! Aine (as dictated to Mom/Mum)

I am having so much fun seeing all the different things that you are doing.
I loved the pictures of you by the ducks!!
The Kinders keep saying, “Aine is in Ireland!”
Tell me about school in Ireland.
We just finished studying the rainforest.
Last week was Catholic Schools’ week. Your sisters can tell you what it is like at Nativity during that week.
We all miss you but we are happy that you can be in Ireland!
Love, Mrs. B
