Mystery Skype with....Ireland

Great job today with Mystery Skype.  I hope you had fun and learned along the way!  Open up the above link to their school website and continue to explore Burncourt NS in Ireland.  It is interesting to see that they have some of the same links as we do: 
Mangahigh, nrich, Go Noodle etc..
What did you enjoy the most about participating in Mystery Skype?  Post your response.

Lucas's Response:
(To the right: a map of where - Cahir (town), Tipperary (county), Ireland is located)

The thing I enjoyed most about Mystery Skype was learning things about Ireland I never knew about. A few of their answers were interesting, such as when we asked them What language(s) do you speak, they answered Quegla but I’m pretty sure they said Gaelic, but in an accent. Also I was looking for a picture of where Cahir is, and found out that Gaa isn’t a sport. It actually stands for Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). Another thing I liked about Skyping Ireland, is that they are mostly Catholic. I never actually knew about which religion Ireland was mostly until now. I also enjoyed being a mapper. -Lucas
