My Favourite Sport - Callum Caplica

My favourite sport is hurling

Its better than them all,

When I want to play it

I give my friends a call.

It is played with a sliotar

and a stick called a hurley

When I want to play in the morning

I get up very early.

 

Hurling - Isaac Sheehan

Its Saturday morning

There is a hurling game today

I'm still yawning

Better get on my way.

I like hurling

Dad likes soccer

Others like running

Some just don't bother.

 

Football is the Best - Neil Crowley

There are a lot of different sports

but football is the best

It's more fun than soccer

and better than all the rest.

Football is my favourite sport

What else can  say

It can be lots of fun 

If you know how to play.
