      My favourite team is probably the Irish rugby team, or the Wexford Gaelic games teams. Gaelic games are the Irish national sports, we play Gaelic football (like Australian Rules football, you can catch the ball with your hands), and hurling, which is like hockey but the ball is a bit lighter and you can catch it and hit it in the air. Both are played in the summer and you might have seen them on Sky Sports last year, hurling can look a little vicious but is one of the fastest and most skilful field sports in the world. In Ireland, each county has their own teams, and I’m from Wexford 🙂

      I have no horses at the moment, I had a chesnut mare in Ireland called Setanta. I would like one now but I’ve been away for work a lot this year so it wouldn’t be fair on it. I ride my friends horses now to help exercise them!
