Did you know that the shamrock is one of the most internationally recognised symbols of Ireland? It is said that this four leaf clover brings good luck to whoever finds it.

Did you know that people in Ireland eat Soda-Bread. They eat that for their dinner.
People eat black pudding in Ireland for their dessert. The drink that is often had includes box tea.

James Nesbitt is famous for his acting as a in Ireland. Did you know that Joyce Cary is a writer from Ireland and writes books for adults. Liam Neeson is an actor and is famous for his movies that he has been acting in.

I have discovered that children in Ireland like to bike as a fun activity. They even like to go out fishing for contests and lastly, people dress-up as leprechauns to show that they are from Ireland.

Are you aware that the cliffs Moher in Co Clare over look the Atlantic Ocean and are Europe's highest Cliffs?

Describing Piri Weepu

It was windy as I looked out from the stadium to see Piri Weepu as he. He puts all his strength into this one and only Haka, staring into the other team’s eyes. Piri Weepu moves fast and also moves like a Tornado. When Piri finally finished the Haka it was than time for kick off.

The opposition was ready. Piri Weepu chased the ball when it was kicked. He then had an opportunity to slide into the ball then released the ball. When he crashed and went through the other teams defence line.

In his number nine jersey, Piri Weepu can sometimes be in for first-five just for some goals.

Piri Weepu doesn’t like doing Maths and History but he does like playing touch, golf and driving. Piri Weepu is a good role model to me by never getting a yellow card,sharing the ball so his team mates never get jealous. He is also an elite athlete in his games that he plays.

He always shows good sportsmanship by never getting in to the fights and never ever getting angry at another team.

He is really special to me by representing our country, New Zealand by leading the the Haka really effectively.

Buddy Writting-Welcoming Tonga R.W.C

When I opened the car door,I couldn't open it because their was a stampede of  people singing in harmony.  I could hear singing  in unison in the air,with all of the other people cheering with support.
“Wow,” I thought to myself saying, “is this a Festival?” I could see Tongan flags waving in hands of fans.Others were embracing and hugging a news reporter. There were cars decorated with red and white flags around it.
While we were at the airport the chanting was even louder than the airplane engines.

After all that waiting finally the Tongan team arrived on stage.All their fans welcomed them to NZ(New Zealand) with support.  The Tongan Captain asked his team mates if they could do the Tongan haka and they agreed to do a haka in front of all the people.

After an exhausting day we all drove down the street cheering and departed to our homes. What a beautiful and fantastic day this was.
