homeless not hopeless

As part of the TYA Young Social Innovators project, students took to the footpaths of Kilfinane to represent the number of homeless people in Limerick. The launch of the TYA campaign "Homeless Not Hopeless" took place today in Scoil Pól. Homelessness is a very prevalent issue in Ireland and as part of the campaign we the TYA students are organising care packages which will be donated to Novas. If anyone would like to donate items for our care packages, please contact the school for more information!

Clay Pigeon Shooting

Today we went clay pigeon shooting at the Lazy Dog shooting range in Ballintubbur. We left the school at 9am and it only took us about 15 minutes to be standing with the guides. We were split into two groups based on build and we either went with Ray or Joe. 5 people in each group shot at a time and we got individually fitted and shown how to work the guns. All of us were right handed so there was no issue there, but when we were checked for which eye was dominant there could be an issue. If you were left eye dominant you had to close it or in James's case, wear an eyepatch because your right eye has to line up with the barrel of the gun. We got 25 casings each and all got the opportunity to shoot on our own, but also in a competition form against each other. There were 3 different angles the clays came from, 1 far away coming towards us and the other two close getting further away. When we all finished we had a chance to take photos and take home some clays if we wanted to.
