My Mam’s Stories
By Áine Ring, 5th Class

One day when my Mam was little, her dad was taking her and her siblings to the beach. They were all very excited. They were on the way and about to pass through a small town, the town was flooded. All of my aunts and uncles were crying but my grandad drove through floods. Then they had a great day at the beach.

Many years ago my great granny would bring her entire family to Knock, they would say three rosaries and another prayer afterward. If you sang all of your hymns you could choose the music on the way home. They would always buy rosary beads, sweets and medals.
