My Big Day at Semple Stadium by Scott Murphy 6th Class, Carrick CBS.

On the 29th May the first round of the Munster Championships started.  The teams were Cork v Tipperary.  I was chosen to represent Tipperary in the primary schools game at half time in the big game.  They made me Captain and I played mid-field.  While I was waiting to play I had butterflies in my stomach and I was nervous.  The atmosphere was electric but once I was on the field my nerves went and I got stuck in.  It was a tough game.  Tipperary won by 0-03 pts to 0-01 point. 


I would like to thank Mr. Mansell and Mr. Cotter for taking me to all the training sessions and giving up their free time.  I would like to give a big thank you to Tony, Dixie and Liam for their coaching sessions up through the years in the Greenschool.  During my training sessions I made friends with lots of boys from other schools.  It was a great day and I will never forget it.  We had our lunch in Hayes Hotel and I got a G.A.A. kit with number 7 on it.  It was a great honour to represent my county and my school on the day.  UP THE PREMIER COUNTY – UP TIPP – BLUE AND GOLD FOR EVER AND EVER!
