Had a look through some of the old school books recently. Couldn't find any books but did find this rare example of an unspoiled coipleabhar.

Haha! Jaysis, I was just talking about the lipstick in the bath incident with my bf this morning!

Those Rith Liom books were so depressing - all that grammar when you only were 7 or 8!

The other primary school in town had Tara and Ben, we had Huggy Bear. Cue weird divide between us all, even to this day...

I found a few more since my last post! In my school all of the books were rented to the students for like £10/ term or whatever and as a result I do not have all the my old school books. Naturally with the rented books they were in a pretty atrocious condition so whenever I got a rented book that was too bad I would make my parents buy it for me instead and a result I have Tine Chnámh and the other Two were belong to my sister. I think Tine Chnámh was in 5th or 6th class as the material seems pretty advanced.

I was in Primary school from 1992 to 2000 and left aged 13, I was never good at Irish and was exempted from the subject that Autumn when I entered Secondary school.
