A message from Patrick- 18th May 2020

Good day to you all!


I hope you had a good weekend. The weather seems to be picking up and hopefully you all got the chance to experience some of it!


I have set the new Purple mash chapter and there is a bonus activity today once you have done the multiple choice! Sent it (and all work from now on) to westgreen.indigoclass@gmail.com.


Today I would like you to research and give me five interesting facts on one country in Europe! I will start with the Republic of Ireland:

  • The three most famous symbols of Ireland are the green Shamrock, the harp, and the Celtic cross.
  • 88% of its citizens are Roman Catholic
  • Many Irish family names start with “Mac” or “O’…”, which means respectively “son of …” and “grandson of …” in Gaelic. My family name a number of generations ago was O’Crean and not Creane!
  • Ireland has won seven times the Eurovision Song Contest (in 1970, 1980, 1987, 1992, 1993, 1994 and 1996), more than any other country. Can anyone tell me what the Eurovision song contest it? When was it last held?
  • Guinness was created in Ireland and it one of the countries most successful exports (what is an export?). It is also Ireland’s most famous brand.

Incidentally, today’s picture is from Belmullet. That is where my family used to live in Ireland.


If you have any questions or want to hand in any work then comment below or email on the address given above. I hope you are all alright and that we will be able to see each other soon!
